Burning Software for linux

Hello all, I am back messing with Linux again. I am looking for some good burning software for linux. Preferably software that is free/open source. I would like to hear some opinions on what you think would be the best. I plan on using it to burn my videos(not movies). I do videos for my church, and I also plan on making my own tutorials. I already own video editing software. I just need to know what is something that works good on linux. By the way, I am using Ubuntu Desktop Edition.

It depends on what features do you need. k3b is the most convenient if you need a large set of features with a null learning curve. It's indeed a very good program that's usable without any previous experience. The only thing that compares (it might actually have more features if you leave appart encoding and concentrate on burning only) is xcdroast. The problem is that it's a 1:1 translation of the command line tools, so you need to know what you are doing. I never liked it. I'd rather use the actual command line tools.

There are simpler ones that just do the basic stuff, like redording files into a cd, dumping an iso image and very little more. Gnomebaker and graveman are in this category, surely there are several more.

Well I do a lot of video editing and things of that nature. I actually plan on making video tutorials for computer building and repair. Maybe other things as well. I figured since Linux has a lot of free stuff, why not use it instead of paying 60 or more for Nero Deluxe. As I want to do everything legit but I am not wanting to pay 60 dollars for a program that I believe should cost 30 lol.
