making playable dvd
I am trying to get a movie dvd to play as soon as it gets plugged into the player but am having a time doing it. I have a movie with several titles and chapters and all I want is the movie and no extras. I have copied what I want. My problem is with dvdauthor. ( i am working from the command line) From an article in Linux Gazette # 83, they say :
"In order for our disc to be played in a stand alone DVD player, the directory structure HAS to be perfect, so please make sure you type the next several commands exactly as shown, in the order shown:
Next we need an Table of Content IFO file, type:
tocgen > dvd/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO "
Where is tocgen? With my dvdauthor it has --toc or -T option. Then it talks about ifogen but I don't see that either.
There should be an easy way to take the files I have and burn them to a disk without menus and all the other bloat and have it play like a normal dvd.
Can someone point me to an article that may shed some light?
