    well you should never just remove a file and think that's the whole program. sometimes it is but not always. you should use a package manager to remove it. if you downloaded the .deb for debian than that was a mistake as it's not working I read somewhere. you need to go to tovid website and read a little. So to remove it you can use this command:
    sudo dpkg -r package_name
    then just to double check, do a search for tovid again.
    sudo find / -name *tovid*
    and see if there's anything left around. if so, then you can remove it
    Then you'll want to download the source and configure, make, make install. there's great info in the faq on the tovid website, also read teh know common problems and the install page.

    Re: HOWTO: Make DVD Videos Using Tovid: The Video Disc Authoring Suite

    does anyone know how to keep .avi resolutions the same? for example I have a file that per MediaInfo is:

    Width : 640 pixels
    Height : 272 pixels
    Aspect ratio : 2.35
    Frame rate : 23.976 fps


    and when I run it through tovid (option for full dvd), it stretchs it to the standard dvd width and height (720x480, I think?), anyway, everything is stretched vertically very noticeably. the movie is watchable but it's just not right! can anyone suggeest anything to how I can fix this? thank you

    i don't see what the point of that question is? I do but that shouldn't matter. what's happening is that the video is being stretched vertically to be 720 x 480 I think and since the video is only 2 hundred something tall, it's making the poeple and everything look stretched vertically. anyone have a suggestion?

    well i just thought maybe the tv's aspect ratio might stretch it out in weird ways, since every time I've made a video with tovid, resolutions always work out so that the movie looks fine to me on my tv

    as to your particular problem, I have no idea, try the tovid forums or the irc channel #tovid on freenode

    I tried removing tovid from one or the other directories and it then tells me that there are no copies of tovid available. Not sure what to do, any help appreciated. Thanks!
    i go the same error installing the .deb, and i know 100% i didn't have it already installed. when i installed by svn it was totally fine. try installing that way.

    thanks for the bandwidth,

    that deb is broken and it specifically stated that on their website I believe. just build from latest source which is 0.31, it doesn't have the error's anymore and it works straight away! I just need to figure out how to get the video to encode it the same as it's source instead of stretching it verically.

    Hi, I've got a stupid question: I succeeded in installing tovid 0.31 and am trying it out right now, the only problem I have is that the GUI interface is to big for my screen. So I can't see the buttons on the buttom which would help me configuring the dvd-buttons etc. Anyone know how to fix this? (simpy resising the window doesn't help, off course)
