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.

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.
