    QDVDauthor

    Oh god how I would love to make just one DVD with Ubuntu.

    Problem is, when I try and add movies, all the screens say ERROR where
    the movie should show.

    I have .avi movies, mpeg, .avi, .divx, mpg wmv you name it.

    Just a bunch of junk I downloaded off the internet just to play with
    this thing and make me ONE dvd just so I can say I did it.

    Well,

    I gave up with the movies and switched to the notion of just making me
    a slideshow with a few pictures and some music from an .ogg file I had
    laying around.

    Things are just now going well for me people.

    My stomach is getting upset by this thing.

    I went to the Qdvdauthor website and looked it over.
    A bunch of help is in command line form. Experimented with that some.
    Everything blew up.

    I need expert advice here. I need somebody to recommend a website
    where I could concentrate on just getting the basics down first.

    I just still can't believe that out of all those movie types of files
    I downloaded off the internet that NONE of them would play in Qdvdauthor.
    I hit play and the thing just dies instantly.

    Wish they had something more simple like thoggen. Now I use the heck out of that. Lot's of .ogg backups around here.

    My fear is that when Blue Ray and Digital TV finally arrives, ,,,,,
    Well, well save that thought...

    I'm being buried alive here people. Please help me.

    Thanks

    I did read that and found it to be much help when I originally installed all my
    multimedia dvd playing and all that.

    My problem is, I feel, I just don't know how to run Qdvdauthor...

    But I wanted to say that I found this document absoultely essential to just get
    to where I am now. It's very good.

    devede? I'm trying this now.

    It's got a pretty cool interface.

    I'm feeding it some of my rubbish now to see if it blows up.

    Thanks

    Open Qdvdauthor. Start a new project. Go to the upper left window with the All Video Audio tabs. Select the All tab. Double click in the white window. You will get a pop up window with your file browser. Go to the folder with your video files. Double click on the video file you want. This file will appear in the All tab window. The thumb nail is still an error icon. But do not care about it. It does not avoid you to author the dvd. Double click on the file in the All tab to adapt Pal Ntsc etc ... .

    Good luck
