Description:

This wizard will allow you to create a DVD from one or more DVD compatible MPEG-2 files. It is designed to be very easy to use. All you need to do is add one or multiple files to the playlist and answer the questions that follow.

You can add a menu that will contain animated thumbnails of the files in the playlist. Creating a menu is optional.

Features include:

* Playlist editor
* DVD menu with multiple pages
* Animated thumbnails in the menu
* Customisable menu graphics
* Add soundtrack from OGG or MP3
* Antialiased graphics prevent flickering on TV
* Both Widescreen and standard 4:3 support
* ISO DVD Image creation
* MPEG2 DVD compatibility checking
* Support for both PAL and NTSC menus

Requirements:

* Kommander >= 1.0 (part of kdewebdev >= 3.3.0)
* ImageMagick 6.2 or 6.3
* MJPEGTools
* Sox
* DVDAuthor >= 0.6.11
* Transcode

Not required (but recommended):

* Xine-UI (for testing the DVD)
* K3B

How to Install:

Just unpack the archive and run the 'Installer.kmdr' script. That's it!


Please contact me if you experience a problem.


-------------------------------------

*** IMPORTANT ***

Because ImageMagick developers keep changing the commandline syntax for every single version, the KDE DVD Authoring Wizard does not work with versions older than 6.1.0. Also, newer versions are not compatible with their predecessors. That's why you need to make sure that your DVDAuthor version is newer than ImageMagick, because it uses ImageMagick for menu processing.

Please send your complaints about this mess to the ImageMagick mailing list.

 error in parsing xml

 
 by hplowe on: Mar 26 2006
 
Score 50%

Hi :)

Some new improvements that could be done:

When your mpeg files have '&' inside their name (and surely other specific caracters), it causes a parsing error at the end of the process (when building the iso).

When the audio mp3 file is corrupted, it tells me very late. It should tell me as soon as possible (building menus is a very long process)

Er, nothing else right now ;)

regards,

The audio checking is on my TODO list.

The evil filename problem is something I cannot do much about. I added a hint to the error message which says that the DVDAuthor error may be caused by special characters in the filename.

Thanks.

If you properly xml-encode the strings that you write to dvdauthor.xml you should not have any problem.

 chapters

Hi :-)

thanks for the chapter feature. I like it. I have one additional idea:

It would be great to have a default chapter handling. For my movies I prefer to have a chapter every 5 minutes for navigation on a DVD.

If you could check for a file like "default.chapters" containing my default list of chapters this would be helpful. It should be overridden by the movie title specific chapters file that is already implemented.

This would make life a little bit more comfortable ;-)

Thanks and regards... Poeschi

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
