What is Roxio Creator 2010 Pro?

Roxio Creator is proprietary optical disc authoring program. Creator will only record data CDs in Mode 1 (consequently, there are CD-ROM drives that will not recognize anything other than the first session of a Mode 1 CD.). Creator supports a wide variety of file formats, including AVI, DV, HDV, DV-AVI, MPEG-1/2/4, MPEG2-HD, DVD-Video, Audio CD, MP3, WAV, WMA, Dolby Digital AC-3, AAC, JPG, PNG, TIFF, BMP and GIF.

About  (from Roxio)

Easily edit your standard and HD videos. Add picture-in-picture effects, titles and scrolling credits. Rotate video with one click; auto-adjust color, brightness and contrast. Save video from YouTube and other popular sites on your PC and convert them to play on your TV, iPhone, iPad, and other portable device.


During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named Creator12.exe. The setup package generally installs about 105 files and is usually about 4.98 MB (5,224,000 bytes).
