    Re: Howto: Make Dvd Videos From An Avi File

    After reading the tovid forums, it looks to me like the library module issue might be that Ubuntu doesn't include /usr/local/lib in the python library module path. (or whatever it is called) I configured tovid to use /usr instead of /usr/local and didn't have the issue. I did find a bug in the 0.27 version of tovidgui. When it calls makexml, it doesn't include "-out" before the output file name. The developer has already answered my bug report in the tovid forums with a simple edit to fix the problem. (I didn't try to track it down myself last night. I was too sleepy.) There is also a bug in the tovid shell script in which the WORKING_DIR variable is not properly quoted in two places. Again, someone in the tovid forums posted a simple fix.

    I thank you again for pointing out this software. It was exactly what I was looking for.

    Ok, well based on your script, you can only make one mpeg file into the iso, right? Is there a way to make an iso with multiple video files with your script?

    Hi,
    Tovid is great, I'd never heard of it before I read this. Thanks for the info.
    I followed your how to up to & including step number 4.
    This took a couple of hours to convert the .avi to .mpeg.
    From there I went ahead and clicked the burn tab, where it converted it into its separate video & sound folders, created a disc .iso & finally burnt the disc.
    The burn process was slow @ 1 x, but it completed successfully & the disc works perfectly. The whole process took somewhere between 5&6 hours. I thought was a little excessive, but the finial product is great quality.

    Thanks again,
    Tony.

    The burn tab really isn't working for me...

    When I select Author Disc Structure and Create Disc image, it starts the process.

    However, it then puts this out:
    Code:
    It looks like some files already exist with prefix
    Removing existing files...
    And it deletes the file it already encoded, the mpg, then encodes it again!

    I must've been very lucky. I don't usually deviate from the instructions, I just had a good feeling about it.

    I've no idea what that means, but Tovid renamed my video during this last stage, as the original was to long. I wonder if that's what made the difference?

    PS. I've seen that Tovid .27 is now availabe, see their wiki - anyone tried it?

    Tony.

    Re: Howto: Make Dvd Videos From An Avi File

    Read my post at the top of this page... it is about a couple of bugs in the 0.27 version of tovid. Both have quick fixes. I think I found another problem with how tovidgui handles files that contain underscores in the filenames though. It (tovidgui) also seems to randomly skip videos when it starts the encoding process. I'll have to do some more testing to be sure though. So far however, the console apps in 0.27 seem to all work correctly.

    Well, I installed .27, but I don't have the time to encode anything tonight.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the bug yabbadabbadont.
