DVDAuthor is a program that will generate a DVD movie from a valid mpeg2
stream that should play when you put it in a DVD player.


Copy bin/#? SYS:Utilities/

Also you may want to set the VIDEO_FORMAT env variable to either pal or ntsc
depending on what video format you want to use by default.

I use for instance:


To generate a DVD ISO (no menus) for burning you can use the commands:

ffmpeg -i <input file> -target pal-dvd -aspect <4:3|16:9> dvd.mpg
makedir DVD
dvdauthor -o DVD/ -t dvd.mpg -v pal+<4:3|16:9>
dvdauthor -o DVD/ -T
mkisofs -dvd-video -V <disc label> -o dvd.iso DVD

where <4:3|16:9> should be either 4:3 or 16:9 depending on the aspect ratio
of the video file.

To add a subtitle track you need to create an xml file with contents like:

    <textsub filename="film.srt"
      subtitle-fps="25" movie-fps="25"
      movie-width="720" movie-height="576"

and then use the spumux command to add them to your .mpg file from above:

spumux -s0 -m dvd -P film.xml < film.mpg > film-sub.mpg

If you want to add more than one subtitle track you need to invoke the spumux
command multiple times as adding more than one track at the same time is not
possible (also remember to increment the number in the -s paramter for each
additional track).


Only the dvdauthor binary has been tested to be working as it's the one I
mainly use from these tools.
