I've spent two hours trying to find something to convert a WMV for my kid's school project. I have to produce a simple DVD that can be played in any DVD player.

I use ImgBurn, DVDShrink, DVD Fab every day, but I've never bothered converting native computer video formats to anything I can put on a DVD.

I've found lots of "freeware" that leaves water marks. I've found lots of commercial software. I've found crap that installs spyware, adware, and malware.

I just need something to convert this one freaking WMV file into something I can burn a working DVD with. It's late, I'm tired as hell, and I don't have much time left.

Can someone help me out? I need free, fast, and easy.

I use ConvertXtoDVD, but not the free version, so I don't know if there would be a watermark or some other constraint. However, that being said, it's a straight forward program, easily configured to include menus, backgrounds, chapters, subtitles, and other extravagances. You can manually set priority and core usage as well, so the later it gets the faster you can transcode and burn.

ConvertXtoDVD is popular, but the "free" version employs a watermark. I've already used WinAVI Video Converter, which works just fine, except for the watermark! Unless I end up doing this all the time, I don't want to buy software.

I installed and used DVD Flick. Did the job just fine.
