    My personal preferred method is entirely by hand (make my own streams and mux them myself) but I assume you want

    If you want free and simple I have been playing with FAVC the last few days:
    Quality is fantastic (quenc and HCenc are the MPEG-2) encoders which in my opinion only fall short of the commercial encoders in the speed department (and then it is only 5% or so), simple menus, multiple audio and subtitles make it fantastic.

    If you want really simple DVDflick: a similar toolset to FAVC makes for similar results. Not quite as open ended but for films it is great:

    WinAVI to convert the file, and nero 7 to burn it. Takes about 40 minutes total

    Some programs I've found to be very user-friendly and invaluable: Total Video Converter and VideoRedo to convert and edit vids, and Ulead DVD Movie Factory to burn them to disk.

    There may be better or quicker programs, but those 3 haven't failed me yet.

    For best results:

    1. Use avicodec to scan the video file and find it's framerate
    2. Use canopus procoder to convert to dvd-standard mpeg (NTSC or PAL depending on the video's framerate)
    3. Use ulead dvd workshop to author and then burn the disc
