How to Burn a DVD

Burn a DVDDVDs are a great way to create and share compilations of family videos or create a disc of videos just for kids. You can watch your favourite home movies on DVDs with family and friends or bring them along in the car so kids can watch their favourite videos on long car rides. Whether you want to burn DVDs of videos you created or make a compilation of your favourite online videos, burning a DVD couldn’t be easier with RealPlayer Plus.

One of the advanced features found in RealPlayer Plus is the ability to burn DVDs of your favourite online videos. All you need to do it is a collection of videos stored in your RealPlayer library, RealPlayer Plus, a blank DVD, and a DVD burner. You can even use the DVD burning software to add custom names and video tile information to the DVDs.


HD Video is all the rage these days. Did you know that you could use RealPlayer Plus to burn HD videos to standard DVDs and then play them in your Blu-ray player at home? It doesn’t take a lot of extra steps or require a deep knowledge of converting videos. The software does all the work for you. Plus, you don’t need to buy expensive Blu-ray discs to create and watch HD videos in your Blu-ray player.


  1. Launch RealPlayer Plus.
  2. Select Burn from the top navigation bar. If the burner is set to Audio CD Burner, use the dropdown menu to pick Video Disc Burner or simply click on the Video Disc Burner button.
  3. Insert a DVD in the DVD burner and choose a DVD type. If you want to burn HD videos to standard DVD, select AVCHD DVD Videos from the drop down menu.
  4. Select videos from your RealPlayer library that you want to burn to DVD and drag it to the video menu. You can rearrange the order by selecting them and dragging them into the order that you want them to appear.
  5. Click the Burn Video to Disc button. There are options to rename the disc or choose to include on-screen menus as a guide to the disc content or remove that option completely. If you opt for the later option, there won’t be any menus or chapters on the completed DVD and it will just play the videos from start to finish.
  6. Click on Advanced Options to choose the video-output setting. NTSC is standard. Change the Aspect Ratio to either 4:3 or Widescreen 16:9. If you plan on watching the DVD on a HDTV choose 16:9. Select the write speed of your DVD player.
  7. Click the Burn button to start burning your DVD
  8. Once the disc is finished burning, you can play it in a DVD player in your car, computer, or at home. Use the customised menu you created to easily navigate to the videos you want.

    I have a Sony camcorder using AVCHD discs. I currently record my HD camera recordings to DVD (don’t have blue ray writer) which I watch on my HD 1080 smart tv. Obviously, recording to DVD loses quality ‘so is your article’ suggesting RealPlayer will generate Hd quality DVD’s? My DVD’s will play happily in a blue ray player (in 720 quality) but I am interested to read your thoughts regarding HD quality on standard definition DVD’s. Also, is RealPlayer Plus available as a download and at what price. Look fwd to your reply. Terry.
