HOWTO make a video DVD from an avi/mp4/etc... file type?
 
In windows i just use Nero and click the make movie DVD and add movie file. it transcodes, then burns the disk with the data i desire.

heck it can even convert PAL to NTCS(NTSC i forget) as well as reduce the quality from a dual layer DVD to a single layer all at once.

can take several hours, but hey it works.

k3b option to make a movie DVD is only if you copied the raw data off of a DVD (VIDEO & AUDIO folders) and you have to plug em or you get nothing that is playable via a set top DVD player.

some guidance would be great.

many thanks.



tired of dual booting for things like this.

Get ffmpeg, dvdauthor, dvdstyler installed on your system, then you can:

Code:

ffmpeg -i source.avi -target ntsc-dvd target.mpg
and either do this to make a simple DVD:

Code:

dvdauthor -t -o target.dvd -f target.mpg
dvdauthor -T -o target.dvd

or use dvdstyler to create a basic menu structure.

man ffmpeg for more options on creating your .mpg files.

If it's an avi or whatever, I generally use tovid-gui to convert it to mpg, and then dvdstyler to burn the mpg to a dvd. Tovid-gui can do both the codec conversion and the burning to dvd, I think. Some time ago it couldn't, so I used dvdstyler for the final burning step, but now I think tovid-gui can do the whole job on its own.

NTSC. 'National Television System Committee'. Or 'Never The Same Color', or 'Never Twice the Same Color' or 'No True Skin Colors' LOL.

You resurrected a thread thats over 3 years old to post that?

Besides being windows software, its doesnt even do what the OP was after.
