Hello! I was looking for a (or more than one) program that can do these things...
1. Edit .avi movies and burn them to a dvd that you can watch in a dvd player.
2. Create Video CD's capable of viewing in dvd players.
3. Copy PURCHASED DVD's onto the computer, then back them up by putting them onto a DVD.
SOOOOO, basically I need a program that can do what Nero does (http://www.nero.com/enu/products.html) AND what Slysoft Products do (http://www.slysoft.com/en/clonedvd.html...http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html)
IF anybody could tell me a or more than one program that can do these things, could you please give me some ideas:confused:

DeVeDe can convert avi to ISO for DVDs, while K3B is great for making VCDs. Unsure about editing video, but acid::rip and k9copy are both excelent programs for ripping dvd's provided you've installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras package.

Video editing is still behind on linux sorry to say, but there are projects that are promising (like kdenlive)

So... there's absolutely no video editing programs for linux? lol that sucks, but understandable... ALSO, if I want to backup my purchased dvd of spiderman 3, would I only use the program k9copy, or would I need to use anything else?????

Oh, and I want to put that back-up onto another blank DVD so I can view it in a DVD player...

For video editing, I run a Windows program - ConvertXtoDVD under Wine successfully. It's the only program I know that will input subtitles into the movie file and can also convert consecutive avi files. If anyone knows of another program that can do this well I would be glad to know too. :)

k9copy will back it up into an ISO in a similar way to DVDshrink for windows, from the iso you can then burn as many copies as required, although it's illegal to and copies for family and freinds you know, personal use only. :P

There are a handful of video editing tools. You might want to start by checking out Kino.
