We wrap up with DVD Author Plus, another free DVD authoring and disc burning tool. DVD Author Plus combines DVD authoring and data disc burning features into one package, which is pretty convenient, and the explorer-like file browser makes hunting down media files and data for burning a snap. The program allows you to burn to data CDs and DVDs, video DVDs (single and dual layer), and .ISO images (no Blu-Ray yet). That said, DVD Author Plus doesn't support as many media formats as DVD Flick (Flash video and .MKV, for example), and doesn't seem to have as many advanced settings to play with in the audio and video fronts for encoding into DVD video formats.
Verdict: While DVD Author Plus has both DVD authoring and data disc burning features as well as a handy interface, it doesn't seem as technically configurable as DVD Flick for dedicated DVD authoring. If you're looking for a program to serve as both data disc burner and DVD authoring tool, this covers both bases. Howeverm if you're just looking for DVD authoring, try DVD Flick, or either ImgBurn or CDBurner XP for data and audio discs.
