Many netizen ask on the DVD forums how to burn a playable DVD with the movies or TV-episodes which purchased from Amazon Instant Video (formerly called Amazon Video on Demand), so i wrote a detailed tutorial to share my experience of burning the Amazon video downloads (.wmv) on your hard drive to a playable DVD disc.

The tool i will use in this guide is the Aimersoft video converter ultimate, I have tried several free DVD burning applications such as InfraRecorder, ImgBurn, K3b, etc., but they all stopped work becasue the DRM (digital right management) scheme included in the Amazon videos prohibits the burning job. Thankfully, the Aimersoft video conveter ultimate comes with a DRM removal feature. I used this feature to strip the DRM protection on my Amazon Unbox video downloads successfully, and finally created 20 burnt DVDs from Amazon VOD movies.

Followings are the concrete operating steps:

Step 1: Download and install Aimersoft video converter ultimate ( you can free download it directly from here, about 34.1MB ), and then fire it up.

Step 2: Press "Add Files" button to find an Amazon Video (DRM .WMV) which you want to burn to DVD, select it and click "Open" to load it to Aimersoft ultimate.

Step 3: Move your mouse cursor to the "Output format" pull-down menu, click it and select "MPEG-2" as output file format. By the way, DVDs are often designed to this MPEG-2 standard. If you add other formats of video files to DVD disc, the DVD player will not be able to read the burnt DVD.

Step 4: Click the "Convert" button to let Aimersoft ultimate start converting loaded file to MPEG-2 format, and the DRM protection attached with the loaded file will be removed automatically during the converting process.

Step 5: When this software finishes the conversion, press the "Burn" tab at the top of the software's window, then the converted file have been added to the list automatically waiting to be burnt.

Step 6: Make sure you have a Blank DVD in the DVD drive.

Step 7 (Optional): On the right side of the software's window, you can choose from several custom themed DVD menu templates, set your own background audio and picture from your computer, set the DVD Label, Quality, Aspect Ratio and TV Standard.

Step 8: Click the "Burn" button to start creating the DVD. Once the DVD has finished burning, exist the software.
