I don’t burn much. To me, it is really not convenient to take physical DVDs or Bluray along with me when I travel. I’d prefer to rip and compress Bluray DVDs to MP4 H264 and watch on whatever devices like iPhone or bigger screen iPad or smart TVs with kids and I even upload them to the cloud for watching. But there seems that a lot of people are still want to burn DVDs or Blu-ray discs for various reasons.
Below is my review for the latest version Leawo Bluray Creator 2020 that burns your videos, ISO files, and photos to DVD as well as Bluray. The review is made on my Windows 10 laptop, so the screenshots are taken on Windows. But the review also applies to the macOS version as well because Leawo Bluray Creator is fully compatible with the latest macOS 10.15 Catalina.
You can follow the below link to download and install Leawo Bluray Creator. However, please note what you download is called Leawo Prof. Media, the total converter for Leawo’s multi-media apps and Leawo Blu-ray Creator is one of the main function modules.
Installing Leawo Bluray Creator is as usual as what we do for other Windows or Mac programs. We need to allow it to make changes to your PC, agree with the End User License Agreement, set the installation folder, install it and done.
What is supported to burn?
Leawo Bluray Creator is a very comprehensive disc burning application and it does a great job burning as the name suggests. And as you can see in the below sheet, Leawo Bluray Creator supports a good many video formats to burn like AVI, MP4, MKV, MTS/M2TS, AVCHD, VOB as well as images like PNG, BMP, JPG, JPEG and DVD and Bluray ISO file.
When compared with other Bluray DVD creating program Ashampoo Burning Studio, Leawo Bluray Creator works much better as it supports many more videos to burn, while Ashampoo Burning Studio only has native MPEG-4, H.264, and AAC support. Further formats are supported as well with additional codecs/codec packs like K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. Or you won’t able to load files like AVI, M2TS, etc with the error message:
Error while loading the following movies:
Possibly, the format is not supported because the codec is missing on your system or file is corrupted. Please contact the support for further information.
Burn MP4/AVI/MKV to Bluray in 720P/1080P
We see Bluray videos in discs are in 1080P and some even in 4K, but we see 1080P or 4K videos are huge and takes much space. With Leawo Blu-ray Creator, you are able to burn your MP4 AVI MKV MTS/M2TS files to Bluray BD 25 or BD 50 in 1280*720 to save space or burn more things to BD 50! Just make sure to select the resolution here:
