Hi all, I have tons of video's and I am looking for a very simple and way to just stitch them together (without too much editing), into a long clip that I can then for example burn to a DVD. As I have stored them all on my PC, I'd ideally do this in WIndows (10). Does anyone have any suggestions?




Thanks a lot,

Use Windows Movie Maker. Drag and drop the videos, one after the other, render a new output video, done.


When installing make sure to uncheck the other programs you don't need - Messenger, Live Write, etc.

What device captured the videos?


I only ask as you'd want to watch the output quality/method chosen.  DVD video is really low resolution, and will be scaling the quality of your videos down if they are at say 720p or 1080p Full HD resolution.




Of course if you make a video file at high resolution, you can store that file on a DVD disk, but a portable hard drive could be another alternative nowadays, or up in the cloud in say dropbox/one drive etc.

Good point. Mostly the video's are from our iphones. I will store them on my NAS, but maybe also use DVD for playback or giving to others etc. :-)

Yep iphones are likely 1080p.  DVD video is half that resolution.




Blank DVD is good to store a 1080p video file.




Just clearing up the potential confusion between DVD as storage, and DVD as DVD video format for use in a DVD player as a DVD movie disk.
