How to make a DVD?


Hi All,

I have a video file (mpeg, approx. 30 minutes) and I must produce a DVD with this video. The DVD must be playable in a regular DVD player.

How can I do this?

I apologize in advance but I am a complete newbie, regarding audio, video, and DVD. I tried to search on this forum and to google around to no avail.

My PC runs slackware 14.0.


Thanks in advance for your help

Phil

i use devede to create the iso which calls brasaro to burn the disk.

There is a slackbuild script for devede at slackbuilds.org:
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...imedia/devede/
Be sure to build and install the noted dependencies first. You can use sbopkg to automate building and installing all of them: http://www.sbopkg.org/

Thanks to schneidz and tommcd for the pointers. I will look into devede.

Does anyone know how to do it with only ffmpeg, and the standard dvd+rw-tools package? (this is just a one-shot job. I'd rather not install lots of software if I can do it with a simple tool and a good recipe)

A bit more info if it helps: the original video is H264 (video) and AAC (audio)

Just amazes me all the cool stuff in Slackbuilds and All the hard work it is to keep it up and going. I use it all the time and never knew this one. Thanks for pointing me that way also.

I never tried this, but as far as I know, K3B with all the necessary stuff under the hood (ffmpeg, transcode, vcdimager) can do this in a few clicks.

Ah, I didn't think about K3B since I have not installed the KDE series. Having a quick look at their web site, I didn't find info regarding how to make a movie DVD (that can be played in a regular DVD player). Maybe I should look further into it. Thanks for the tip.

Reference to understanding standard dvd:
http://web.archive.org/web/200603291...com/index.html

get ffmpeg and dvdauthor packages from slackbuild/alien repository, plain/vanilla Slackware dones't have them. You need ffmpeg to break down and convert mp4/avi files to (NTSC-DVD) vob, then using dvdauthor to build the dvd structure tree, and using mkisofs to build a dvd images, before using isoinfo to check it, last you use dvdrtools burn its to dvds.

@OP you said "I have a video file (mpeg, approx. 30 minutes)"

from some LQ thread using dvdauthor looks like I took mpg file and did following to create DVD

export VIDEO_FORMAT=NTSC
dvdauthor -t -o filename.dvd -f filename.mpg
dvdauthor -T -o filename.dvd/
growisofs -speed=4 -Z /dev/sr0 -dvd-video filename.dvd/


UPDATE: once you get ffmpeg installed
ffmpeg -i filename.mp4 -target ntsc-dvd filename.mpg
then rest of above steps

This is what I was looking for. I will try this recipe. First step is to get and build dvdauthor (I just had a look to AlienBob's repository, but his dvdauthor package is for 12.2. Maybe a bit too old, but I guess there is no longer much interest in producing regular DVDs...)

Thanks also to glorsplitz for the dvdauthor info. My original video is mpeg4 (h264, aac) so I guess I have to convert it first to mpeg2 with ffmpeg.

I appreciated number22's link with some DVD-Video layout info. It's more than I need, but it has shed some light on all these mysterious .VOB, .BUP and other files.

I will mark the thread solved, and will come back to you with more precise ffmpeg or dvdauthor questions if needed.

Thanks

Phil
