kino - help with exporting video
I'm not in front of my linux box, but I'll try to remember what was happening...
I installed kino a few weeks ago on my mandriva box. After I got the "capturing" figured out (thanks petespin27), I tried to "export" to mpeg so I could burn a DVD.
On the Export screen, when I enter a filename (w/o the extension) under the MPEG tab, kino states "Exporting....blah blah" ... and then about 20 to 25 minutes later, it shows "Export finished".
At first the problem was that there was NO FILE with the name I specified (no output file). Found out that when you check the box "remove temporary files" it removes the MAIN OUTPUT FILE (seems stupid to me...). Anyway, I unchecked the box, and exported again. Then I DID have an output file. OK good...
So I start up DVDSTYLER, which supposedly uses kino's exported mgeg files, and converts them and burns a DVD, with menu, and buttons, blah blah.
Problem is that DVDSTYLER always says that the kino output file is an unrecognized format... I have tried exporting as "MPEG 2" and also as "DVD". I also tried marking the box "create dvdauthor xml file", but dvdstyler doesn't know what the hell that file is either.
Does anybody here use dvdstyler? Is there another program that can burn kino's exported files to a DVD...?
Note: I installed kino and dvdstyler with urpmi - so I have all dependencies...
note: I don't want to post on the kino forum. I posted my original "capturing" question on the kino forum 3 weeks ago, still no replies. I get more help on this board.
