DVD-Video authoring

The fastest way I am aware of creating a DVD-Video from whatever moviefile you have lying around is using ffmpeg, dvdauthor and growisofs in the following way:

ffmpeg -i mymovie.avi -target pal-dvd - | dvdauthor -o dvd -
dvdauthor -o dvd -T
cd dvd
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvdrw -dvd-video .


Now, dvdauthor may complain about the aspect ratio, in which case you can explicitly set the aspect ratio using the "-aspect" parameter of ffmpeg.

Hi Takis,

I'm quite frequently visiting your blog, because I always forget how to call ffmpeg and dvdauthor. =8)

BTW: You do not need the "cd dvd" with this:

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