    Problems with making DVD

    I'm trying to make a PAL, widescreen DVD. - Lobster cinnamon 5.6.7 kernel 6.2.0-39-generic

    I've used Brasero 3.12.3, but it insists on either converting the file and making a very bad job of it (most of the plugins are greyed out so I can't configure them) or else failing immediately with "Impossible to link plugin pads."

    This is despite using KDEnlive to create an MPEG2 file and also trying to feed the file through ffmpeg with the -target pal-dvd option.

    dvdstyler appears to no longer have an installation candidate.

    I'm not ripping them... I'm trying to create them.

    An example would be nice then.

    BTW Handbrake will make home DVDs as well

    'devede' is in the repositories. The package should actually be called DeVeDeNG since it's a rewrite of the original DeVeDe to use Python 3 and GTK 3. Found on https://alternative.to when searching for alternatives to dvdstyler.

    Thanks. That did the job. It also converted the MPEG2 file I created, but it did a great job of it and created a good quality output. Many thanks.

    Re: Problems with making DVD

    If you want to save a little time, you can transcode the original codec faster with just ffmpeg. You would use:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.avi -target pal-dvd output.vob
    This transcodes the original file to a mpeg2 compliant vob that DVDStylerNG can quickly turn into a DVD. (you can also change -target pal-dvd to -target ntsc-dvd for your USA friends)
