How to Make Music Videos on DVD for Your Car

By Kara Page

Having a DVD player installed in your car can be the end of boredom during long road trips or hours stuck in traffic. With a blank recordable DVD and the software installed on your PC or Mac computer, you can create a collection of your favorite music videos to watch in your car. With Movie Maker and iMovie, you can even mix up the clips and make your own creative presentation featuring the music videos you have downloaded.

Things You'll Need

  • Movie Maker or iMovie
