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.

Version: 2.9
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.

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.

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

Hello, well i used this Version to make 10 different DVD'S. I had NO ISSUES under Mavericks and all DVD are working very well. The Image Quality is the best i have seen so far...

Dear Dev: Awesome Work!!!! Plz go on with it!!!

Version: 2.6
- [ ] Pros: - [ ] Can produce a 16x9 aspect ratio DVD whose menus display properly when played on a TV-connected DVD player. I have yet to find a DVD Creator at the Mac App Store that is able to do this simple task. - [ ] Can produce a decent picture quality single-layer DVD with 3-hours of content. - [ ] Cons: This application is very fussy. You have to play by its rules or you won't be allowed to play. - [ ] Application cannot be located in a folder or path that has any space characters in its name. Perhaps there are other "illegal" characters that cannot be in a path, but I have not tested that extensively. - [ ] Video clips added to a project cannot have any characters in their filename that are beyond the traditional ASCII set. Unicode filenames need not apply. - [ ] If you don't "baby" this application, it may freeze up during processing. Don't move its windows around or you'll be sorry. - [ ] Conclusion: - [ ] Version 2.2 of this application, the last "stable" version that worked at all for me, was really showing its age when run on my 2011 iMac under Mavericks. - [ ] Version 2.6 is no worse than version 2.2, and has a few more features.

Although I try every few versions, I’ve never gotten this POS to work. It’s a nice gesture that the dev offers it for free, but in the absence of actually working, it just wastes our time.

Same probs as others report, and can't find version 2.2 as recommended. It may be free, but it sure wastes a lot of time.

Will not launch at all on my iMac running latest Mountain Lion. Back to version 2.2. That's the latest one that actually works. Why do I bother with this app at all? Because it's the ONLY free/cheap DVD creator I've found that can produce a 16x9 DVD in which the menus display properly on my TV-connected DVD player.

The good news: On a fairly new 64-bit iMac running the latest version of Mountain Lion, unlike its predecessor, this app actually works. It's not as nearly as easy to use as iDVD, but there are powerful, somewhat hidden features that require downloading the manual. The bad news: On an older 32-bit iMac running the latest version of Snow Leopard, this app goes through all the motions, but craps out during .iso creation. If you have an older Mac, get version 2.2, and also don't forget to download the manual. For those who swing both ways: The windows version of this app works well, but slowly, within Crossover (and probably performs much better under real virtualization). There aren't many free choices for menu'd DVD creation, so this app is worth a look if you want to create DVDs on the cheap.

Version: 2.3.5
DVDStyler 2.3.5 The developer of this app has a very spotty record of building a version that works properly under OS X. The Windows version of DVDStyler 2.3.5 came out about four weeks ago and it took until now for him to release a Mac version. And guess what, the Mac version doesn't work. (If you want to try this app out, look for version 2.2. It was released in the spring of 2012, and it DOES work.) I tried running this app on two very different Macs. In an old 32-bit iMac running Snow Leopard, the app goes through its paces, and fails when it tries to write its .iso file. (Two tries, two failures.) On a fairly new 64-bit iMac running Mountain Lion, the app just plain crashes when I try to add a second video file to the menu. Being built for multiple hardware platforms, the user interface tends to be pretty non-Mac-like, but one can eventually get used to it. It's one of the few DVD creator apps I've found that can actually produce a 16x9 aspect ratio DVD that will play properly on a stand-alone DVD player. And it's free, to boot. But I repeat. This version does not work. Find version 2.2.
