In general, we know that DVD Flick supports quite a range of video formats, which may probably cover the most common ones in our daily life, as shown in the below figure.
However, if you accidentally put the incompatible video format to DVD Flick for burning to a DVD disc, you may get disappointed because you may get the message “no usable video track” when you drop the source video clips to the program.

Another reason is that many videos are protected using certain copyright, such as .wmv or .mov with Apple copyright protection.

In this case, you may fail to continue with DVD Flick to burn the movie to the disc.
