A little script to write dvd


Hi:

Linux 2.6, Slackware 12.0

I'd like to decode and write to DVD a movie.
Sources: only one: juan.avi, which I think has no
subtitles and to which the following information applies:

general information
video format...: avi
encoder........: x264 (h.264 main)
audio..........: english (ac-3) (5.1 ch)
file size......: 1.1gb
source.........: retail dvd
original format: pal
genre..........: drama
movie origin...: united kingdom
movie runtime..: 01:51:11

Target: DVD+R removable disk.

Now, if someone could suggest a little script to do the
job, I'd be much obliged. Regards.

Try 'tovid' or 'devede'.

If you want to build some nice menus, you might check out dvdstyler. The newer versions seem to be able to automatically transcode the video as well.

I don't have tovid or devede. To do the burning i've got
the powerful cdrecord. So my problem is how to make the
image. I'll look into the distribution. Perhaps i find
those programs. Thanks.
