[Tutorial] Make DVD video in Ubuntu
From the last post, i assume you already have file(s) in .mpg format. Now let’s continue to make a dvd video from .mpg file(s). To make dvd video and make an iso from it, you need to install this tools:
If you don’t have that tools yet you can use this command:
sudo apt-get install dvdauthor mkisofs
Okay, now you already have that tools. Let create a dvd video from your .mpg file(s). Follow this steps:
1. Create the dvd video file structure.
dvdauthor -o / -t video-file.mpg
this action will take a while. This step will make a dvd structure in folder.
2. Test the DVD structure.
dvdauthor -o / -T
3. Create The .ISO File
mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o filename.iso
this action will take a while. After it finished you will see filename.iso in your folder.
4. Burn the iso file with any burning tools you like. I always use GnomeBaker as default Burning tools.
That’s it. Now you ready to burn the iso and store your dvd somewhere safe or copy the iso file to your backup harddrive.
ps: There is another tools for make a dvd, it called devede, you can install it with this command:
sudo apt-get install devede
Have a nice day….
