DVD9 to DVD5


I am working on a small python project of my own based on the script but with subtitle support. All works well up to the dvdauthoring stage.

I have managed to "create" a movie with sounds that dvdauthor accepts and creates a working dvd structure. I have also managed to apply a subtitle to that movie, i can turn the subtitle on an off in mplayer.

But when i try to dvdauthor the movie with subtitle, it works for a while and then dvdauthor returns.

$ dvdauthor -o dvd movie-subs.mpeg
DVDAuthor::dvdauthor, version 0.6.8.  Build options: gnugetopt magick
Send bugs to <>

INFO: dvdauthor creating VTS
STAT: Picking VTS 01

STAT: Processing movie-subs.mpeg...
ERR:  Audio pts moves backwards; please remultiplex input.
Does anyone have an idea how i can author my movie?

Thanks XavierP
But this time i already gone thrue the posts in LQ, before posting a new queston

The problem i seem to have is that mplex is not able to multiplex subtitles together with audio and movie. Instead i have to use spumux from the dvdauthor kit. But for some reason dvdauthor dont seem to like a movie processed thrue spumux.

Does someone know if there is a way to fix the movie that spumux broke so that dvdauthor likes it. A passthrue multiplex thrue mplex or something?
