    Re: From AVI TO DVD

    i use a python script i made, along with nautilus actions (same sorta method as the imdb thing that's linked in my profile). you'll have to edit the paths to things, as i doubt you have a hard drive called giantpeach

    #! /usr/bin/python
    import sys, os, optparse, os.path
    print "========================================"
    print "about to create a dvd..."
    print "========================================"
    from optparse import OptionParser
    parser = OptionParser()
    parser.add_option("-i", "--input", action="store", type="string", dest="video")
    (options, args) = parser.parse_args()
    os.system("mkdir /tmp/iso")
    os.system("ffmpeg -i " + `` + " -target pal-dvd /tmp/iso/1.mpg")
    os.system("dvdauthor -o /tmp/dvdparts/DVD/ -t /tmp/iso/1.mpg")
    os.system("dvdauthor -o /tmp/dvdparts/DVD/ -T")
    os.system("mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /tmp/iso/DVD.iso /tmp/dvdparts/DVD")
    os.system("rm -r /tmp/dvdparts/DVD/")
    os.system("rm /tmp/iso/1.mpg")
    myPath =
    (dirName, fileName) = os.path.split(myPath)
    (fileBaseName, fileExtension)=os.path.splitext(fileName)
    os.system("mv /tmp/iso/DVD.iso /media/giantpeach/film" + `fileBaseName` +".iso")
    raw_input('Hit enter to remove intermediary files')
    print "removing files and folders DVD, 1.mpg that were used during processing"
    os.system("rm -r /tmp/dvdparts/DVD/")
    os.system("rm /tmp/iso/1.mpg")
    with this i just right-click on a .avi file and i can select 'convert to dvd' from the menu (once i add it with nautilus-actions)

    there's also tovid or gui programs like devede and mandvd if you want to create menus or are converting episodes to dvd.
