So you pay huge bucks for the new “Adobe Creative Cloud” But you notice something’s missing. Adobe Encore. Why is this you ask? Well, it’s a new age. A new age of online media distribution, and a new age of phasing out physical media distribution. It may be hard to face, but this is the cold hard truth. With ever growing online media distribution, it is only inevitable that these apps to create DVDs phase out as well. The same thing happened to tapes years ago and the times are changing again.

So what options do we have? If you go to our Resources page, you’ll see the ones we’ve put together. We’ll outline these in deeper description in this blog.

 

DVD Flick & ImgBurn (Windows/PC)

These software apps are for Windows PC only. You can use DVD Flick to package video files as folders to then burn to DVD. Then you can use ImgBurn to actually do the burning. In ImgBurn, simply select the folder you wish to burn, and it will burn it for you.

Burn (Mac)

Burn is the best option for Mac computers. Burn is pretty simple to use and supports a lot of different video file types.

As the new age settles in, we can expect to see even these apps phase out over time. But these should be solid alternates in the absence of Adobe Encore.
