I've been looking for DVD authoring software for months and came upon DVDFlick, it's pretty damn good and it's GPL. I've been transferring all my home videos to DVD and finally I can make use of my DVD drive. DVD-Rs are super cheap now and now I can put all my home movies on DVD and send to relatives. Woot!
I'm also impressed on how much I can fit on a single-layer DVD and still keep acceptable quality. And to think I was using VHS for all these years.
the only sucky parts right now is the audio. it's normalizing it and I don't like it. The video also can jerk around on scene changes(when I copied a movie), but this is rare. I was told this was a problem with ffmpeg and nothing I can do about it, but I doubt it's unfixable.

I used DVDFlick to show my uncle how to convert his VHS tapes to DVD. Just used a cheap usb adapter to hook the VCR to a laptop, recorded to MPG and processed it with DVDFlick to create the DVD. He was happy with the results.
I recognised Exls name on the program and asked him about it in #legacy, low and behold it he was the author. Small world, etc
I tried but I can't even run DVD Flick anymore, neither from the sources or from an install. What you can maybe try is replacing the ffmpeg.exe inside DVD Flick\bin with a newer one, say from http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/win32/static/
Might not work at all though, FFmpeg has changed plenty in the last 3 years.
