    [ubuntu] Re: cdrom device in tovid ?

    You should have a symlink in /dev called "cdrw" or "cdrom".

    ls -l /dev/cd*
    from a terminal should show it to you.

    [ubuntu] Re: Grep error when using todisc

    Go to the "Playback" tab, then select the "Chapters" subtab. A readonly copy of the videos you have loaded should be there (load those first). Click on a video and add the # of chapters for that...

    [ubuntu] Re: svn ffmpeg problem

    Just a suggestion that rather than struggling with vhooks you could just remove -quick-menu from your command line when using tovid/todisc (or just don't select it in todiscgui). Then you would...

    [ubuntu] Re: Grep error when using todisc

    It looks like tovid was not installed correctly, as tovid-init is missing or not in the PATH that executables are searched for. How did you install ?

    [ubuntu] Re: ToDisc error

    The error seems pretty clear. You are missing the '-out' switch. todisc -files ... -out my_dvd ...
    "man todisc" for details.

    [ubuntu] Re: DVD Menu creation?

    If you have used tovid, then you missed the todisc script which is included with this suite. ( or for gui: todiscgui )
    Some examples and docs are on tovid.org.

    [ubuntu] Re: todisc aka tovid

    You are using the gui ?
    Run it from a terminal: tovidgui -f
    (or 'todiscgui')

    [ubuntu] Re: tovid problem

    "strings: command not found"
    You are missing the 'strings' command, which is part of binutils. todisc in SVN has been modified to remove this unneeded dependancy.

    Hard to say. Green frames are often caused by garbage at the beginning of the video, but the default -seek of 2 seconds should take care of that. Try posting to...

    The encoder will only use as many bits as it needs to encode your source. If it is of poor quality to begin with, encoding at an artifically high bitrate will just stuff useless bits.

    Same thing for todisc actually. It may have been possible in 0.31 to create one, but it was not really by design. For 16:9 menus it would require another set of hightlight/select pngs at different...
