Actually, it seems like this may have been done already. I'm currently using
tovid to convert the avi to an mpg with a command something like this:
tovid -dvd -full -ntsc -in originalavi.avi -out output.mpg
tovid and a frontend called tovidgui can be found at
Once this second file is done converting perhaps I can use dvdauthor or
something to actually make the dvd files themselves and then burn them with
k3b. Does anyone know if dvdauthor lets you insert chapter divisions?
You brute! Knock before entering a ladies room!
