Converting mpg to dvd

Like many of my technology postings, this is really here for my own notes on problems I run into, the solutions I try and what works when. They are updated as I learn. 

DVD Flick – old standby, works a majority of the time

ConvertXtoDVD6  – watermark

Nero 2017 – long installation, installed 5 unneeded programs, kept crashing at start

WinX DVD Author  – could not find DVD Drive

Easy MPG to DVD Burner – command failed everytime

AVStoDVD – full of crap

DVD Author – creates ISO
