Using Intervideo WinDVD Creator Plus
With Intervideo WinDVD Creator Plus, you can capture, edit, and record video
and audio files. You can also use Intervideo WinDVD Creator Plus to create and
record DVD videos using your own video and audio files. Intervideo WinDVD
Creator Plus works with DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM
media. For more detailed information on Intervideo's WinDVD Creator Plus
features, go to the WinDVD Creator Plus User's Guide on the User's Guide and

The main function areas within the WinDVD Creator Plus main window are
"Capture," "Edit," "Author," and "Make Movie". From these functions, you can
import and edit your own video and audio files, then save them into any
supported format. The supported formats include MPEG-1, MPEG-2, ASF, WMV,
and AVI. When you have prepared your video and audio files, by going through
the "Capture" and "Edit" steps, you can then add a customized menu from within
the "Author" function. You can import your own still images to use as menu
backgrounds or select one of the sample images. When your movie is ready,
proceed to "Make Movie" where you can select the output format and video
standard used in creating your movie. Burn your movie to disc or save it to the
hard disk for burning later. If you use WinDVD Creator Plus to create a DVD
image on your hard disk, you can select "Load Image to Burn" from the Project
WinDVD Creator Plus also offers the capability to record video directly to DVD
recordable media using "Disk Manager." This is done without using any additional
space on your hard disk. With Disk Manager, you can capture new video or use
video files you already have, and then finish your movie by creating a customized
menu. Your movie can be created in either +VR or –VR video formats. Through
Disk Manager, you can edit your movie at any time, adding or deleting video
segments or changing your customized menu.
Installing WinDVD and viewing a DVD movie
To install WinDVD, go to the "Software" section of the Software and User's Guide
After you install the Multi-Burner drive and WinDVD software, you can view a
DVD movie. But first you need to set the DVD region code for your DVD content.
DVD region codes
DVD region codes help protect the contents of a DVD. The world is divided into
six regions and specific content can be viewed only in the appropriate region. For
example, content for Region 1 can be viewed only in the U.S. and Canada.
WinDVD is also region–specific.
You can verify the region code of the content by looking at the region code symbol
on the back of the content packaging.
Europe, Middle East, South Africa, Japan
Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Korea
