    MP4 to DVD disc

    Hit "Burn" to make DVD from MP4 files once you’re ready. Put a blank DVD-R or RW (or other disc types) into your DVD-ROM drive and choose it as a destination. Please note that you can’t put your media on a CD with our DVD burner software.

    If you don’t have a blank disc at the moment, you may export your project as a folder or ISO image and save on the hard drive disk of your computer or USB flash. For the last option, insert it in a port beforehand. Just choose the respective option in the format settings window. You will be able to add your project into Freemake again and write it on a disc at any time.
