Convert DivX to DVD in Linux

Hi,
I have some issue while working on Linux system. Here I have some audio files which shows DivX type format. I want to put them in a DVD and burn to a normal audio disc. How to trans-code this file to normal format and create a DVD. Is it possible to add or remove menu from a DVD on this platform. I can rip a CD here. But I think the there is a different command line in a DVD case. Has anyone tried the same. If yes then post the most possible solutions for the same. Thanks in advance.

Re: Convert DivX to DVD in Linux

You can here extract the two parts of a divx file, that is to say the video and audio. On my machine, the extraction takes as much time as the film itself. Transcode is able to generate two types of video: PAL and NTSC. Choose NTSC only if you are certain that your DVD player and TV supports this image format. Returning to transcode: you will need to specify which format to use with "- export-prof-DVD FORMAT. FORMAT must be written in small letters. Also tell what transcode library use. Here, if you use ffmpeg then specify with ffmpeg "-y ffmpeg. The command line is-
Code:
 abcDivX.avi transcode-i-y ffmpeg - export_prof dvd-pal - export_asr 3 \ 
  film_the-name-of-movie_ movie.ac3 J modfps = clonetype = 3 - export_fps 25
Replace abcDivX.avi to your DivX file. Transcode will then generate two files: film_movie.m2v (video) and film_movie.ac3 (sound).

Re: Convert DivX to DVD in Linux

If you want to check that your sound track is 5.1 then run the first command below. After that the two parts of movie you get as per the above post you can merge them together to get a full film for your DVD the command is listed at the end for the same. And if you does not want any menus in the DVD then use the third command while burning the disc. You can burn the DVD directly from the command line. If necessary, replace / dev / dvd by the location of your burner.

Code:
 mplayer-vo dummy-identify movie.avi 2> / dev / null | grep "5.1 ("
  # The output can be "AC3: 5.1 (3f +2 r + lfe) 48000 Hz 384.0 kbit / s"
Code:
  mplex-f 8-o film_dvd.mpg film_moive.m2v film_movie.ac3
Code:
growisofs-Z / dev / dvd-dvd-video mon_dvd /

Re: Convert DivX to DVD in Linux

to create the DVD you can choose to create a dvd without menus or chapter points or create a dvd with menus and chapter points possible. From here, you can create a dvd without menus. To create the tree from a DVD, use dvdauthor. This program needs a configuration file to create the tree. In our case, we will create a file my_dvd.xml located in the same directory as film_dvd.mpg my_dvd.xml
Code:
  <Dvdauthor> 
      <Vmgm /> 
      <Titleset> 
          <Title> 
	      <Pgc> 
              <Vob file = "film_dvd.mpg" /> 
              </ Pgc> 
          </ Titles> 
      </ Titleset> 
  </ Dvdauthor>
You must create a directory tree that will host the DVD. It must be located in the same directory as film_dvd.mpg.
