Not found iDVD on Lion? iDVD disappeared after upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion? Just take it easy. From Lion, iDVD no longer comes with every new Mac. It's ridiculous the latest Lion does not come with iDVD, but the Mac Book Pro, running Snow Leopard, has iDVD installed. The current Apple wants people to distribute home movies to friends and relatives via iCloud or the advanced Final Cut Pro X by Apple, rather than send them a DVD disc burned with iDVD for free.

Obviously, iCloud is not everyone's choice. DVD is still a convenient media to transfer movies, or to watch movies on TV. Here is the solution. If you think iDVD is a must-have, you can complaint on Apple's site (some people get free iDVD copy by this way), or if you have iLife '11 DVD, you can install iDVD from the DVD. The last way is to find an iDVD for Mac equivalent that works on Lion.

My recommendation is iSkysoft DVD Creator for Mac. It's a great DVD burning application similar to iDVD Lion that lets you author DVDs with beautiful menus and burn movies to DVD disc for playing on any home DVD player. Download iDVD Lion alternative now for a free trial.

iSkysoft DVD Creator for Mac is a program with most likely features to iDVD, and even better than iDVD. Apart from burning video files to DVD, it also features slideshow making tools to transform your photos to slideshow with music, and then burn to DVD with your DVD burner on your Mac. Below I'll show you how to burn video and photo files to DVDs without Lion iDVD. If you're using Mountain Lion, see iDVD for Mountain Lion.
