Sure enough you can access a great deal of multimedia content over the web, but chances are you still enjoy inserting a disc into your player to enjoy a movie on a big-screen TV. In this regard, you need to create appropriate discs with files of interest, case in which Open SmartBurner helps get the job done fast and well.
Once the application is installed you can go ahead and take it for a spin without restarting your computer. Running the program brings up a selection window to help you get started. Data you select can end up either on a DVD or Blu-ray disc. The entire operation is the same regardless of your choice.
As such, you can choose to burn regular data files to a DVD or Blu-ray disc, or create specialized video discs from video files. Adding files to the operation is either done by dropping them over the main window, or using the browse dialogs. If creating a disc from regular data lets you import any kind of file, creating a video disc limits your choice to formats like AVI, MP4, FLV, MPG, M2TS, TS, VOB, MOV, WMV, RM, and RMVB.
On the bright side of things, the application lets you start sessions using an existing ISO image, thus skipping you the file selection process. There’s a space indicator to help you realize when you’re close to the limit.
Accessing the setup screen allows you to configure the DVD and Blu-ray video settings, such as format, bitrate, encoder, and resolution, but also options to set burn I/O and speed. Settings can be tested out before applied.
Taking everything into consideration, we can state that Open SmartBurner is a fast way of creating a video DVD or Blu-ray disc, but also to burn general data on such discs. It offers an intuitive set of tools with which individuals of all levels of experience can quickly get accustomed to.
