DVDwizard — automated creation of DVD structure


dvdwizard [options] mpeg-file [mpeg-file2 ...]


DVDwizard is a wrapper-script which incorporates a fully automated
creation of a DVD-structure with chapters and menus from one or more
mpeg-streams. This is done by several "sub-scripts" and various freely
available tools.

-L | --loop value
Playback mode of the DVD. Possible values are:

0 return to vmgm menu after each title,
-1 display vmgm menu before the first and after the last
-2 display vmgm menu only before first title and loop all
titles endlessly,
num num is a value between 1 and 9. Suppress vmgm menu and
loop all titles endlessly, starting from specified title.

-MS | --vmgmsound filename

Title-specific options
-t | --vts string
Create a new titleset on the DVD with the subsequent options and
mpeg-files. -t must be followed by a filename or a string or the
word "auto". "auto" determines title-string from filename of

file is considered to be the first mpeg in this titleset, else
the string is used as movie title for this titleset.

optional "+hi" to indicate a subpicture track for hearing
impaired, i.e. "-s de,de+hi".

-i | --info filename
Points to a text file containing description and the like for
the movie.

-ms | --vtsmsound filename
see -MS, but only applies to this titleset.


Every new -t creates a new titleset on the DVD. Subsequent options -c,
-b, -a, -ar and mpeg-file(s) apply only to that titleset. To create a
DVD with two titlesets and a special background, use for example:

dvdwizard -t auto -c 30 title1.mpg \
-t auto -b bckgrnd.ppm title2.mpg


BASEDIR defaults to the current directory if not stated otherwise in
the config file (either default ~/.config/dvdwizard/dvdwizard.conf or
specified with the -C option).
