Never tried copying a dvd until last night. Based on a suggestion on an LQ thread, I used "k9copy." Success! Too bad it's not on the list.

Jeremy, i'm a little confused. Why is Maya here? I believe its a complete solution for Animation/Modelling/Rendering/Texturing/Dynamics in your DCC(digital content creation) work. I work on it daily. It's not a video editor.

It is a complete solution for those things, but we don't have a category for that. I'd say it fits better here than in any other category.

Well if you say so. Remember Maya is way superior to all those combined, I vote Maya.

I would have put it in the same category as blender if it were me.

Just got a new cam for Christmas

My box has been Windows free for over two years, but I had to install it again next to Slackware recently.

Why?

Because video authoring on Linux sucks big time. I can't even capture videos from my cam via firewire. I tried everything...I beat myself up over it for days, spent hours upon hours Googling for solutions, read pages and pages of documentation, but I just couldn't get it to work. Installed Windows and everything worked beautifully right out of the box.

People keep trying to tell me that my fireware card or cable are defective, but that can't be true because they work perfectly in Windows.

None of the apps above compare to the likes of Adobe Premiere, Ulead VideoStudio, or even Windows Movie Maker. They're fun and simple to use and they make fantastic home videos with hardly any effort.

Don't get me wrong, I love Linux, I love Slackware, but when it comes to video authoring, Linux leaves me sorely, sorely disappointed.

Dang, I hate being forced to dual boot with Windows again

Kino is the only video capture/edit app I've found that actually works and is worth the effort to configure. In regard to the previous reply, you might give Kino another shot before capitulating.

i have always been partial to devede. there is no program simpler for dvd making. I think it is unfair having Maya in there.it does way more than all of these.

I'm dissapointed from most of these apps and especially on this category for linux since non of them either just didn't work or dind't fit my needs. But as an overall I would go for avidemux

Post mencoder

I believe you should include mencoder. I've used it to rip all my dvd.
