Command-line DVD pre-preparation

article #285, updated 3371 days ago

The following converts a huge variety of video formats (replace .ABC with whatever you have, AVI, FLV, etc.) to DVD-compatible MPEG:

ffmpeg -i videofile.ABC -target dvd -aspect 16:9 -sameq videofile.mpg

FFMPEG is standard in probably all non-minimalist Linux distros, and can also be had for Windows now.
