Question app for VCD creation


hi there,

does anyone know if there is some sort of VCD creation application for linux? I used to create VCDs under Windows with NERO before I switched to Linux - it was able to re-encode vidz if needed and created video CDs successfully.

I tried to use Nero under VMWARE (with a virtual WinXP O/S) everything worked fine until I was gonna burn the CD - it just wouldn't read something properly and keeps saying that the CD is unwriteable - even it recognizes it as an empty one under 'CD info')

So I either find myself an application that allows me to do similar things through linux, or I have to copy files over via samba and then boot up to my Windows 2K (which I very very very seldom do) and burn the CDs from there. Any suggestion guys?

Thanks again for your time!

not sure about the dat file since i don't use them file formats, but the other three will be alright, but regarding the wmv files you have to do this:
Quote:
Although Avidemux can now open the contents of a WMV2 file (Windows Media Player 7.x/8.x format) - the video data must be contained within an AVI container.


To create this container, you can use the MEncoder package in copy mode (eg.): mencoder [wmv file] -oac copy -ovc copy -cache 8192 -ofps 100.0 -o [avi file]
thats taken from the docs on the site....
