DVD wizard does not work


when I try to create a DVD with the "DVD wizard" in kdenlive, I always obtain this message :

DVD structure broken


If I launch kdenlive from command line, this message appears in the terminal :

kdenlive(11572) DvdWizard::slotRenderFinished: DVDAuthor process crashed


But maybe this problem does not come from kdenlive. I tried several authoring software (dvdstyler, mandvd, DeVeDe) and I always get an error. I tried to reinstall the dvdauthor package but it had no effect. I finally used dvdstyler under Windows XP and it worked fine... But I would prefer to achieve the same result with Linux !


Software used:

Ubuntu 9.04 beta

Kdenlive 0.7.3






This is caused as the kdenlive DVD Wizard is not capable of converting any video
to the required mgp format required by the DVD players.
So if the video is not in the correct format it crashes.

you can use mencoder to convert it perfectly before making the video DVD

mencoder -oac lavc -ovc lavc -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd -vf scale=720:576,harddup -srate 48000 -af lavcresample=48000 -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg2video:vrc_buf_size=1835:vrc_maxrate=9800:vbitrate=5000:keyint=15:aspect=16/9:acodec=ac3:abitrate=192 -ofps 25 -o OUTPUTFILENAME.mpg INPUTFILE
