.mpg to dvd directory structure problems (dvdauthor)


I'm trying to make a dvd directory structure for a file called final.mpg so that I can burn a dvd of the .mpg file, but it is not working, and I don't understand why.

lub997@linux:/media/usb-storage-3LJ2YW5P0000:0:0:0p1/dvd/white_castle/make> ls
final.mpg movie.ac3 movie.m2v movie.vob
lub997@linux:/media/usb-storage-3LJ2YW5P0000:0:0:0p1/dvd/white_castle/make> mkdir dvd
lub997@linux:/media/usb-storage-3LJ2YW5P0000:0:0:0p1/dvd/white_castle/make> dvdauthor -o dvd final.mpg
DVDAuthor::dvdauthor, version 0.6.10.
Build options: gnugetopt magick iconv freetype
Send bugs to <dvdauthor-users@lists.sourceforge.net>

INFO: dvdauthor creating VTS
STAT: Picking VTS 01

STAT: Processing final.mpg...
ERR: Error opening dvd/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB: No such file or directory
lub997@linux:/media/usb-storage-3LJ2YW5P0000:0:0:0p1/dvd/white_castle/make>


What am I doing wrong? How can I fix it?

I don't think dvdauthor is supposed to be able to take an mpeg file as a command line argument (I could be wrong, but I can't find any mention of doing that in the man page).

What you need to do is create an XML description file. Here's an example from the docs (on my system there are HTML files under /usr/share/doc/dvdauthor):
Code:
<dvdauthor>
    <vmgm />
    <titleset>
        <titles>
            <pgc>
                <vob file="final.mpg" />
            </pgc>
        </titles>
    </titleset>
</dvdauthor>
Create a file called dvd.xml in the directory and use those contents, then do:
Code:
rm -rf dvd
dvdauthor -o dvd -x dvd.xml
(the rm may not be strictly necessary, but if it exists and has any data in it, sometimes dvdauthor will try to append instead of creating the dvd from scratch).

Still the same error. I dont' have usr/share/doc/dvdauthor, but I do have /usr/share/doc/packages/dvdauthor, which is what I tried.

lub997@linux:~> cd /usr/share/doc/packages/dvdauthor
lub997@linux:/usr/share/doc/packages/dvdauthor> pico dvd.xml
lub997@linux:/usr/share/doc/packages/dvdauthor>
