How to Make a Movie DVD with Windows Movie Maker in Windows 8

Windows 8 doesn’t have a built-in way to create a DVD from a movie. However, you can download the free Windows Live Movie Maker tool and burn a DVD with just a few clicks. First, download Movie Maker from get-started. The installer will prompt you to install other apps, but you don’t need to install anything other than Movie Maker.


Movie Maker is a complete video editing app. This article describes only how to create a DVD from a video file, which could be a video you recorded yourself, a video you downloaded, or even a slide show of your photographs.


To create a DVD from a video, follow these steps:


1. Start Windows Movie Maker.


2. In the right pane, select Click Here To Browse For Photos And Videos. Select the video you want to burn as a DVD.


3. On the Project tab, select either Widescreen or Standard. Most videos today are widescreen.


4. On the Home tab, click Save Movie, and then click Burn A DVD.


Movie Maker, a free download, can burn a DVD from a downloaded video.


5. Save your video when prompted. You can delete this file after you burn your DVD.


6. On the Add Pictures And Video To The DVD page, click Options. On the DVD-Video tab, verify that the options are set correctly for your video.

7. Click OK to close the DVD Options dialog box, and then click Next.


8. When you see the Ready To Burn DVD page, insert a writable DVD (such as a DVD-R), and then click Burn. After you burn the DVD, you’ll be given the option to save your project. That’s only necessary if you plan to burn another DVD. You can play the DVD in any modern DVD player, though some older DVD players might have problems with DVDs created by a computer. It’s a good idea to test the DVD, just to be sure it burned properly, because DVD burning, like CD burning, can be an unreliable process.
