A few days ago I noticed Ashraf’s post about DVD Flick. While reading the comments, it seems to me DVD Flick is a hit or miss software — for some people it works, for others it does not. If you are one of the people who have been failed by DVD Flick, you may want to give Aimersoft DVD Creator a go. Like DVD Flick, Aimersoft DVD Creator is a DVD authoring software package.
The following is a description of Aimersoft DVD Creator, as per the developer:
