    Arrow DVD Burning

    Hello,

    I have a video file (.mkv) and its subtitle file (.srt) that I would like to burn to a DVD. How do I go about doing so? Which program do I use? I would prefer something with a GUI since I'm not so good with the command line. Thank you.

    Brasero is a CD/DVD burner included with Ubuntu. It's a GUI application. For converting from MKV to video DVD you can install Devede. And for DVD authoring there's Bombono DVD.

    I would use Devede if you mean to play the DVD in DVD player.

    Re: DVD Burning

    Thank you for the replies. When I try to install DeVeDe, it gives me a list of things I need to uninstall, so how do I uninstall them? How come I have to uninstall things to get DeVeDe anyway? Kind of confused about that. Here's a screenshot of what Ubuntu Software Center says:

    I use K3b, it's in the software center and synaptic. Easy to use with nice GUI. There are a number of add-ons for almost anything you would need.

    Re: DVD Burning

    So I tried DeVeDe and it created an ISO file that would take up about 6.2 GB on a DVD. I only have 4.7 GB DVDs, so my question is, how can I split it into 2 discs? I'll take a look at K3b also.

    Sorry, I was going to post in there, but figured since I know nothing about burning a video DVD on Ubuntu, I'd post it in the beginner's section. Thanks for moving it to the appropriate section.

    If you find no other way to split the video, it should work with either of these, to change the video (before making an iso file of it).

    1. Try with ffmpeg to make one copy of the first part of the video, and one copy of the second part using the -t and -ss options.

    2. Try with ffmpeg to decrease the file size via quality of the video, so that the whole video will fit in one DVD disk. I mean that you can decrease the frame size or use some filter or simply decrease the video bitrate using the -b option.

    See
    Code:
    man ffmpeg
    or some tutorial on the internet.

    All good. Probably have better luck here, beginner burner or not.
