Both the Windows Media Player and Burn My Files can directly burn music files to DVD discs directly and Burn My Files can directly burn to the DVD disc without writing temporary files to the computers. It would take two main steps, converting and burning, for the Leawo Prof. Media to finish the process. But if you use the Leawo Prof. Media, you don’t need to insert an DVD disc into the computer before you begin burning.
What’s more, only the Leawo Prof. Media integrates modules which allow users to design the music files and output videos files freely. The editing options are plenty for customization. Users can customize the DVD menu, add video effects, add subtitles, add background images or music, etc. While the Windows Media Player and Burn My Files can only burn the original audio files without permission to edit the files or add anything. In this case, users have to find other tools if they need to add a subtitle or add a background image.
So in conclusion, the Leawo Prof. Media is a powerful all-in-one software bundle for users to burn DVD discs and design the videos at will. It is a much more convenient tool than the other two.
