Revision of Creating DVD Movies with Ubuntu & Tovid from Tue, 02/26/2008 - 10:52

I have recently been looking into creating a DVD movie in Ubuntu from an .avi file. After a lot of research and testing a few methods I have found one that I am extremely happy with. This method involves using Tovid which is a collection of GPL video disc authoring tools according to the Tovid site.

For this example/tutorial I am going to be using Elephants Dream, a open source movie made exclusively with open source programs and tools. I decided to use the .avi version as I wanted to make a .avi file into a DVD although Tovid can handle most video files.

Seems a bit complicated for the newbie

Why not recomend something like ManDVD that does all of this as well but with a nice gui that allows for a lot more options.
