    How to burn movies?

    How do I burn movies that will play in DVD players with Linux Ubuntu? I switched from Windows XP and Vista, and I could burn movies with menus. I'm new to Ubuntu, but I can't find a program that will do menus, unless I'm just overlooking something. Oh, and if someone could tell me where to get the program, that would be awesome. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    devede will burn movies awesome (much faster then vista)

    it also does menus (not as fancy as vista though)

    Edit:
    yea, vista burns dvds all in one long action, but with devede you first convert the movie to .iso (takes awile) then you burn the .iso to a disc (very quick)

    devede is an excellent program for this.
    It allows you to create an iso file (an image of the video DVD) from any videos that you can play in Ubuntu.
    You can download it in Synaptic, or open up a terminal and run this:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install devede
    Once installed you'll find it in Applications --> Sound & Video --> Devede.

    Devede allows you to create a simple menu with several titles, different fonts / background image. It's quite easy to learn too.
    Once you've got the iso file from devede, you can burn it with Brasero / right click on the file and select "Burn to disc".

    K3B is only good at burning CDs / DVDs, it won't let you author video DVDs.

    Ok, before I install anything, does anyone know which program will let you create chapters in movie files?

    well..

    im pretty sure you could create chapters in devede

    but first you would need to split the video file into segments (one for each chapter)

    ive never personally done it but i have heard avidmux will split videos
