Having been rated by CNET as the best disc burning software in 2007, InfraRecorder was the first of its kind in at home cd and DVD writing software. Even though InfraRecorder uses cdrtools to do the actual disc writing, the software helped to completely optimize the task and make it easy enough for anyone with interest in mixtapes or home movies to do it. Developed and released by Christain Kindahl back in 2006, this program made it possible for people to compile, create, and burn their own CDs and DVDs in the comforts of their own home. Christain was able to offer InfraRecorder to the public for free, making it the much cheaper alternative to using commercial writing software. Currently, InfraRecorder is compatible with all Windows Operating systems except for those older than Windows 2000 and is even included in the 64-bit versions of Windows. With the 64-bit versions, you do miss out on Ogg Vorbis decoder as well as the libsnd library due to some complications with MinGW on the Windows platform. Having been released thirteen years ago, this product has had time to grow and change with the needs and demands of its users. In more recent updates, InfraRecorder is now capable of doing more than just burning music and basic video and sound onto discs. Some most recent updates to InfraRecorder make it possible to work with rewritable and multisession discs, extract WAV, and ISO image files from discs. It can use the LAME MP3 encoder to save Audio files from CDs. This system is easy to use and worthwhile software for any and everyone to get behind.
