DVD authoring describes the process of creating a DVD video that can be played on a DVD player. DVD authoring software must conform to the specifications set by the DVD Forum group in 1995. The specifications are complicated due to the number of companies that were involved in creating them. Solid AVI/DIVX to DVD Burner is a useful DVD authoring software.

Strictly speaking, DVD authoring is a separate process from MPEG encoding, but most modern DVD authoring software have a built-in encoder (though separate encoders are still used when better quality or finer control over compression settings is required).
Most authoring applications are for video DVDs only; they do not support the creation of DVD-Audio discs. Stand-alone DVD recorder units generally have basic authoring functions, though the creator of the DVD has little to no control over the layout of the DVD menus, which generally differ between models and brands.
TopviewSoft, a Singapore corporation, is also a major player in selling DVD authoring tools. They previously manufactured computer based audio recording applications. They soon realized that at some point DVD recorders would become as widely available as CD recorders and that there was no affordable application for the home market or that DVD recorder makers could license as an OEM. At that time, all DVD authoring applications cost many thousands of dollars.
