Windows 7: Why is Nero Burning Rom rated so low on TopTenRevies ?

Adobe Premiere is what you need.
Then import into Encore.

This is mean for professionals though. Its far more complex than needed for the typical home use situation.

Nero Suite or Premiere Elements would be more suited to making your own DVDs.

It looks Enocre has a built in burner- it was a terms confussion- they use the term of "building" a DVD instead of burning.

BTW which tool from the Nero suite is design for authoring DVDs ?

Hi there
in addition to all the other posts

1) NERO used to be fine for what it was originally designed to do -- Burn CD's / DVD/s or make images of them.

2) Now it's FULL of Bloatware most of which you don't really need -

3) Overtly complex.

Now these days who really needs CD's / DVD's any more --and if you are running W8 the OS will natively mount .ISO's so provided you can make a software ISO your system should be able to handle it without needing physical media. Most modern machines don't even HAVE DVD drives any more.

If you are on W7 there's plenty of Virtual ISO image mounters around to do this too -- Alcohol 51% is a good free one for example.

Plenty of good software exists for capturing / creating multi-media -- Nero isn't really worth it any more I any case.

For CD ripping if you still have those Winamp and loads of others out there do that just fine.

With smart TV's if you want to play multi-media content from your computer on a TV just connect the TV to your Network. If the TV isn't quite that smart just connect via HDMI cable. You don't need to play DVD's via a physical DVD player any more - just create a virtual / software iso and mount it --simply then use VLC to play it.

If you still have a DVD device - us something like AnyDVD to create a copy (an iso) --it will remove region restrictions too and then mount and play the virtual iso created.


Cheers

Well my smart Tv its not at reach so I cannot conect via HDMI neither via wireless since I dont have that "i digital media receiver " to intermediate. Anyway Ill play a bit with Encore which seems to have quite a complex interface for a dvd authoring software but that adds to the fun

thanks for all of your inputs

Hi there
don't give up on the wireless so easily
You can actually get an HDMI Wireless transmitter -- however what the quality is I've no idea.

Here's a picture of some google links -- just go through some of those and see -- the BEST one costs around 180 USD - but that might be overkill for what you want to do --you can get cheaper ones --depends on range and video quality though.

Cheers

Probably because Nero is nothing short of bloatware and a resource hog.

There is much better burning software these days that are either cheaper or free.

Nero used to be great in the day, but has been progressively getting worse. I have a dual core system with tons of ram and I STILL would not consider Nero.
