dvdauthor ========= dvdauthor is a program that will generate a DVD-Video movie from a valid MPEG-2 stream that should play when you put it in a DVD player. To start you need MPEG-2 files that contain the necessary DVD-Video VOB packets. These can be generated with FFmpeg, or by by passing `-f 8` to `mplex`. How to Use ---------- There are 3 steps to building the DVD directory structure on your HDD. 1. Delete a previously authored dvd dvddirdel [-o dir] To guard against mistakes, this will only delete files and subdirectories that look like part of a DVD-Video structure. 2. Create your titlesets dvdauthor [-o dir] [audio/video/subpicture options] [chapters] To create 1 chapter per mpeg, simply do dvdauthor [-o dir] [a/v/s options] chap1.mpg chap2.mpg chap3.mpg... To manually specify chapters, use the '--chapters' option dvdauthor [-o dir] [a/v/s options] -c chap1a.mpg chap1b.mpg -c chap2a.mpg chap2b.mpg .... To add chapters every fifteen minutes, do dvdauthor [-o dir] [a/v/s options] -c 0,15:00,30:00,45:00,1:00:00,1:15:00... longvideo.mpg Call dvdauthor for each titleset you want to create. Note that due to the DVD-Video standard, all audio, video, and subpicture options must be set once for the entire titleset; i.e. you cannot mix PAL and NTSC video in the same titleset. For that you must generate separate titlesets. Run dvdauthor -h to see the audio, video, and subpicture options. Note that dvdauthor can autodetect most parameters except the language. 3. Create the table of contents dvdauthor -T [-o dir] Voila! You now have a DVD-Video directory structure that will probably work! You can now write this out to your DVD, mini-DVD (CD), or just play it from your HDD. To generate the UDF image to burn to DVD, use `mkisofs` and pass it the `-dvd-video` option.
