DVDStyler makes the job and it's free ! I can read the DVD's on my external Panasonic DVD Player without issue. It's no so easy as other applications, but there are many options and there is a good documentation on the site. Look and feel is maybe 'old fashioned' but i'm also 'old fashioned' ;-) I tested some other app's: the good one's are too expensive for similar efficiency... (fyi, i'using and iMac under El Capitan 10 11 6)

Well it took the developer(s) three tries to get DVDStyler 2.9.x working properly under Yosemite, but this version IS ready for prime time, but with a couple of caveats: The crashing Font bug still exists, and I doubt they'll ever fix it. And remember, this is an unsigned app, so you need to right-click > Open the first time you run it.

I should have mentioned above: I was able to create my 8-part, almost three hour test DVD in about half an hour. That's the same result I got with version 2.8.1, the last Mac version that actually worked right.

DVDStyler 2.9 just came out. It is not ready for prime time. DON'T DOWNLOAD IT! They broke the transcoding function. It spins its wheels forever, producing thousands upon thousands of "buffer underflow" messages. This 3-star review is for DVDStyler 2.8.1. As a freebie low-end DVD creator, it can't be beat. It can produce a 3-hour DVD in less than 30 minutes. If you want more sophisticated features in your DVD, you must tinker with the dvd.dvds file, not very easy but learnable. One warning though: If you want to change the menu font settings, this application will crash every time. This bug never seems to get fixed, and it probably has something to do with cross- compiling the application for Windows/Linux/OS X. You can change the menu fonts by tinkering with the aforementioned dvd.dvds file.

DVDStyler 2.9.1 is now available. Skip that one too. They fixed one problem, and another problem still prevents it from working properly. (I can't test whether it works OK under Mavericks, but it's sure no good under Yosemite.) Stick with version 2.8.1.

Fails to launch in Yosemite!!! I wish the developer would make a mention of that on his web site since i am sure he would have a Mac computer/external harddrive that he could test his own programme and make a comment to the effect that it does not work in Yosemite.

I was concerned when I red that half-star review, so I downloaded the app and gave it a couple of tests. IT RUNS JUST FINE in Yosemite. It IS an unsigned app, so one must go through the one-time operation to get it going. Perhaps that's what the reviewer was trying to say, but that does NOT warrant a half-star review.

That said, I always archive one older version of this app just in case. There have been problems in the past. Not this time though.

Note to MacUpdate: The developer says this version requires Mavericks or greater to run. Please fix your description.

@Chrischram: and what exactly is that "It IS an unsigned app, so one must go through the one-time operation to get it going."

It might have been prudent for the developer to provide a heads up warning or instructions.

I expect to simply download and launch an application that may be of some use to me. If i have to go thru some gymnastics then at least tell me.

And of course MacUpdate is not any better by not disclosing that information. Makes me wonder why i even have a paid MacUpdate account.

2.7 and 2.6 immediately crash upon starting on 10.8.5 (MBPr). After the 2.6 disaster i was hoping for 2.7, but the crash-saga continues … back to 2.5 the only working version is 2.5
