K3B will work,... It's a gui interface for the command line burning tools...

K3B can burn DVDs, provided you have the whole DVD file structure already created. If you just have some videos and don't know how to create the DVD file structure, try my program tovid.

GnomeBaker can burn DVDs perfectly as well, if you're on GNOME and don't want to install kdebase and qt this is a reliable alternative

install dvdrip and transcode and all necessary dependencies, which is fairly easy to check as dvdrip has a built in dependencies checker. in my opinion by far the best tool for Linux. i have also had success with acidrip, k9copy, rip-o-matic and even dvdshrink with wine installed but the latter one requires you to understand wine to a degree so you can set the parameters for the working directories properly. but once you have that right it works pretty much the same as in windoze. if you install mscore fonts first it even looks great too! what distro are you using? if you use ubuntu or mepis you can install automatix2 which makes it easy to install a lot of useful apps including dvdrip. just google for it. i am sure you'll love it.

regards
ron

Just a curiosity question, why would you use a program like Nero, under Wine, when there are a ton of Linux native CD/DVD Burning software out there? I see you are still learning, but I imagine if you got Wine installed/configured so you can run Nero, you should be able to install any burning utility without to much fuss.... Just a thought...

As for utilities, I like Gnomebaker(but K3b is pretty good to)
For Ripping movies, dvd::rip is awesome.

As far as Nero goes, there's a port for Linux, so even less of a reason to run WINE!

Hmm, I wasn't aware of that.

Thanks for the info!

It was the latest Mandriva release, I'm sure

Personally I am in love with Gnomebaker. deeveedee (sp?) is also useful for converting those 700mb avi <achem> home movies to DVD discs

I have used this some years ago and back then you still needed a nero activation code (which must be purchased) to get it working and it just turns out to be another front end for the already existing command line tools. so theoretically it should not be any better than k3b or gnome baker and the like as they use the same tools. so again, why would you bother?

As this thread is quiet active, it may not be such a bad idea if I dropped a question here:

when using dvd::rip and going from dvd to avi using ffmpeg for mpeg4 compatibility, occasionally i get the audio and video being out of sync. Has anyone ever come across this? is there a fix for this problem at all? I have tried various options like dual pass or single pass encoding, large or small frame size. haven't fiddled with audio bit rate yet.

thanks,
ron

Are you sure about that? AFAIK, Nero for Linux is relatively new and I find it hard to believe they would just have a front end for some other software. Even if they did, it's only $20 and is drag and drop like the Windows version, which makes it much easier to use than command line.
