Post Convert .mkv or .mp4 to .VOB and write via K3b.


Hello.
I used "AVS Video Converter" on Windows OS for convert .mkv or .mp4 to .VOB and after convert, "AVS Video Converter" make some files as below :

VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.VOB

When I convert another .mkv or .mp4 to .VOB, The program make files with the same names in another directory and when I want write them via K3b, I got a message for replace files because of same names. I changed the names of second video files manually to :

VTS_02_0.BUP
VTS_02_0.IFO
VTS_02_1.VOB
VTS_02_2.VOB
VTS_02_3.VOB

and write them via K3b but DVD Player can't show the second video files and just show first videos.Any idea to solve it?

Tnx.

I'm not sure how it is set up to do, but creating a different dierctory and putting them into that would solve your problem becuse it is now working in an empty directory again, as it names all of the selections in sequence. like
Code:
Movie_name/CD1
Movie_name/CD2
Question: DVD Player, they are no longer on a DVD but files in hdd/directory,

vlc ~ as I've only delt with VOB a little bit, I just loaded the "whole directory" at once and it plays it like a DVD giving me that option on the screen like it was on a TV using a remote, that is kind of cool, but why are you doing this may I ask, as in mkv you can just play the move, unless you're dooing something keewler then that.

@ hack3rcon

What you need is a dvd authoring program. A dvd authoring program can handle the video conversions, adding more than one video and creating the final dvd filesystem either to a directory or an image. All you have to do is burn the image or point to the directory where the dvd authoring program created the dvd filesystem files ( *.VOB, *.BUP,*.IFO ).

I use Bombono DVD and it is cross-platform for windows and linux. I use the linux version. It can make a simple dvd menu of your video(s) or you can be very creative with fancy fonts, menu borders, motion thumbnails and backgrounds and etc.

http://www.bombono.org/cgi-bin/wiki/Download

Youtube has some videos on using Bombono to get familiar with it.

Here is a basic video on bombono dvd.

I mean is DVD Player device not software.

By default K3b create two directories, "VIDEO_TS" and "AUDIO_TS". You mean is that I should create directories under "VIDEO_TS" ?

Tnx.
are you trying to put two movies on one DVD?

it looks like that the standard format for DVD files to be just like they are created, and the software you are using can only put one movie per DVD.

Now I have seen DVD with more then one movie on them, you'll have to research how to get that done if in fact this is what you are trying to do.

look for software that can put two or more movies on one DVD, even look a little deeper into what ever it is you are using to see if it can in fact do this too.

but if not, then one way just off the top of my head is to just join the two movies together first then have your other software split it up into the DVD format. draw back they will be seen as one movie and should play one then the other one right afterwards.

----


file -> DVD -> format is it all goes into one file structrue on DVD
Code:
movie one
|
| -- movie two
|
|--------DVD --
               |
               |
       all files for movie go here for one movie
       so it sees duplicate files for one folder that
       it uses on the DVD, the option over write the other one,
       or do not add it.
Savy?


MODDED:
I just found something that may help you in your endever.
it has not been updated in a while, but it might still work,
so if it works use it yes?

I think the OP missed my post. I told OP he needs a dvd authoring program. A dvd authoring can convert his videos and he can add more than one video for a dvd project. The dvd authoring will then take all that information and create a final dvd filesystem of *.VOB, *.BUP, and *.IFO files into a directory or an image ready to burn onto a disc.

BW-userx and brockm789 are correct about using a dvd authoring program. Linux has a few like the ones mentioned plus dvdstyler. Windows has a free one called WinX @ http://www.winxdvd.com/dvd-author/. A dvd authoring program is like using a WYSIWYG HTML editor. You create a layout with text and images that point to the corresponding video(s).

If you DON'T want to use a DVD GUI authoring program, here is a quick bare bones method to author a dvd in linux. ( No menus, chapters, etc )

The videos on the disc will start to play automatically. To play the next video on the disc, you'll have to press the next/forward key on the remote or the next button on a dvd player program like vlc.

first convert the video(s) to a dvd compatible format

ffmpeg -i video1.ext -threads 4 -target ntsc-dvd -q:v 1 output1.mpg

** Replace ntsc-dvd with pal-dvd if outside the usa.

Repeat the process for the other videos you want to include on the disc by adjusting the input and output filenames.

create a empty directory for the dvd files. It can be whatever name you want.

mkdir dvd

Now type

dvdauthor -o dvd/ -t output1.mpg -t output2.mpg ...etc

Next, type

dvdauthor -o dvd/ -T

You will get some messages about things missing. Just ignore it. dvdauthor uses a xml file that describes everything about the videos and instructions for the playback. Since we are not supplying a xml file, we will get some warning messages.

You can test before burning to disc, by typing

vlc dvd/

Finally, byrn the disc

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd -dvd-video dvd/

** Replace /dev/dvd with your actual dvd device node.
