Looking for free / open source DVD Authoring software

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Yvan J. Gagnon, Jan 21, 2004.

  1. Can anyone here recommend a decent freeware/open source DVD Authoring
    program for the PC platform? I'm not looking for anything too fancy,
    but something wysiwyg and that can output to an ISO/disk image file
    would be nice.

    I've been gathering software for a course on digital audio and video
    editing that I'm putting together that will be based entirely on the
    use of free/open source software applications, and I've been able to
    find some great programs for everything except dvd authoring. I tried
    to do a simple, menu-less DVD using "IfoEdit", but that turned out to
    be a complete waste of time. And "DVD Author" also turned out to be a
    disappointment. Surely, there has to be something better.

    Thanks in advance,

    P.S. I already know about the 30-day trial Ulead programs. What I am
    looking for is something free/open source that never expires.

    Sorry, I don't know any.
    Please, tell us where we can find it, once it's ready.
    Why a waste of time?

    just mucking about with Ifoedit and DVDshrink a few days
    ago. I could create a few single title DVD's (ifo and vobs)
    and combine / author them with Dvdshrink on one disc no
    trouble. but need to create chapters for better navigation.
    anybody know Ifoedit's preferred chapter file format?

  4. I've been gathering software for a course on digital audio and video
    I certainly will! I'll be releasing it on DVD likely within the next 6

    Because The DVD I created with it had a video stream that played at
    double speed, -- while the audio track played at normal speed. What's
    up with that? I must have missed a step or two. Is there an online
    guide for using the program somewhere? I'm not looking to rip & copy
    DVDs with it. I just want to author a single-play DVD disc (no menus)
    using my own, dvd-compliant mpeg2 files.
