KDE CD/DVD Software

Score 75%



Minimum required   Qt 3.x
Downloads:  22300
Submitted:  Jun 23 2008
Updated:  May 25 2010


This is ManDVD again, still in QT3. Its a DVD authoring tool that was originally written by KDE-apps member Gibault Stéphane. I've used it for myself for some time, but the development seemed to have stopped. Anyway I decided to try to fix some of the things that I wasn't pleased with. So I'm sharing it here if someone wants to try it out. I decided to call it version 2.5 since all I could find was old 2.4 versions to download. If I do something wrong by this please forgive my ignorance. I usually don't write that much software.

LATEST VERSION INFO (2.6-1): Most work on fixing bugs and some experimental work on higher resolution, breaking the DVD standard doing so. (Please test that on your own risk) VLC seems to play it OK, but else not much is known. Time has been limited to do proper test cases of different combinations of media in general.

There is also now a standard intro video available and logo and splash as been redesigned. Thanks Simon and Mathias from SMIT2. (Details are in the changelog)

* Old saved projects can not be used from ver2.5 series.
* Version 2.6 is more adjusted for 16:9 in general
* Please help with bug reporting and packing for other distos.

Any feedback are much welcome. Good or bad as long as its constructive.

TRANSLATION: Can now be done with QT-Linguist.

Done QT-Ling : Swedish, English
Done old style: Portuguese, German (Update needed)

PREVIOUS VERSION INFO (2.5-5): This is the first version I might call a "stable release". I've have put most work in finding bugs and some improvements.

depending on input quality.

is the half-size DVD standard. Make reasonable quality with less space
- Fix bug so now its possible to remove intro video if its the last to remove
- Fix audio encoding to handle obscure bit rates when going to AC3
- Saved project files now handle Introduction Video better
- Saved project files does not have the same name that made things bad if
different projects where stored in the same folder

Dear all Mandvd users! I can't find any time at the moment to do any coding in ManDvd. I got to much to do in my new work. If someone would like to continue or fork this program, please do.

Until I got some time again I would like to say thanks to all feedback and help to all of you, packers and translators etc.

Until we meet again, have a good time.

Ok,first thanks for your great work!
In the menu activated by "Define chapters" is impossible,for me,to add a chapter in a certain position of video.Then when I push quit mandvd crash.Nothing of this happens if I use Automatic division in chapter mode.

 How to change the DVD size?

 by joeprusa on: Aug 21 2008
Score 50%

is there any way to change the generated DVD size? Even if my videos total some 4GB, the generated DVD image is 7 GB. I could not find any way to set the target size. But strangely - I think it used to work in an earlier version..

I had nearly a same problem.

ManDVD creates an shell script encode.sh which do all the the encoding stuff.
I think ManDVD writes wrong parameters.
You can change this file according to this http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/de/menc-feat-vcd-dvd.html document.

After you changed this you can execute it by calling Quote:
bash encode.sh
on your shell

After that you can call Quote:
dvdauthor -x dvdauthor.xml
to create the vob files

 Encoding from AVI to VOB??????

 by benbloom on: Oct 3 2008
Score 50%

This App seems very nice and would work great except it does absolutly nothing with AVI files. It loads them in and recognizes them, menues are nice and I can customize chapters but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to ENCODE them to VOBs for burning. (which is after all the whole purpose of this app no?) HELP ANYONE?

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.
