Problem is, that module doesn't appear to exist in the current version of transcode. There is a README file for it but I can't read it (it's in German and I'm not good enough with my German to understand it).
4th question down - don't use it.
For me, I can get a dvd with the following code:
- Code: Select all
# mencoder -o myfile.divx -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=msmpeg4:vhq -oac lavc -lavcopts acodec=mp3 myfile.mpg
# transcode -i myfile.mpg -y ffmpeg -w4500 --export_prof dvd-ntsc --export_asr 3 -o myfile -D0 -s2 -m myfile.ac3 -J modfps --export_fps 29.97 -q2
# mplex -f 8 -o myfile_dvd.mpg myfile.m2v myfile.ac3
# dvdauthor -x dvdauthor.xml
# growisofs -Z /dev/cdrom -dvd-video DVD/
This assumes that your file is named 'myfile.divx', and your burner is /dev/cdrom. Adjust accordingly. Of course, you could use a wild combination of pipes to simplify this, if you so desire, since the output of each process is the input to the next.
Here's a copy of a dvdauthor.xml as a guide:
- Code: Select all
<vob file="myfile_dvd.mpg" chapters="0,0:15:00,0:30:00,0:45:00,1:00:00,1:15:00,1:30:00,1:45:00,2:00:00"/>
If you use this, it will automatically chapter the film every 15 minutes, so you can use the ">>|" button to skip boring parts. I assume you can see how it does this, and adjust accordingly. Interestingly, if your movie is only an hour long, this still works - it just ignores the chapters that are out of the timeframe.
All the code above is based on NTSC and television viewing. You might want to adjust resolution for screen viewing. Also, the transcode flag "-w4500" sets the bitrate. I think the default is 6000, but with really high quality rips, I have gone as low as 3500 to get the file to fit on the desired media. Your mileage may vary.
You know, it feels really really good to give advice to Void Main!
