How to Free Convert/Burn MOV to DVD on Windows 10/11/8/7

Prepare well the below tools before you embark on MOV to DVD burning:

  1. Software: Free download and install this video to DVD converter and burner
  2. Hardware: a PC computer with disc drive (or external drive)
  3. Disc: a blank and writable DVD disc (DVD-R/DVD+R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW)
  4. Source: MOV video (not iTunes DRM protected one or severely damaged one)

Note: if your MOV is encoded by ProRes codec, be it 10-bit HD ProRes, you're suggested to convert MOV ProRes to MOV HEVC codec first. HEVC adopts both inter-frame and intra-frame compression algorithm, with video quality and file size perfectly balanced. Comparatively speaking, ProRes only uses intra-frame compression in video encoding, which would keep highest possible quality but at the price of quite large file size. Precisely because MOV ProRes 10-bit HD video is whopping large in size, around 6GB for 1-min video duration at 30FPS. Converting ProRes to HEVC codec is aimed to reduce MOV video size first while keeping almost identical quality. Thus, it won't cause any burden to your black DVD disc (4.5GB or 8.5GB space).
