Converting AVI files and creating a DVD

John Bennett

Trying to convert AVI files in Opensuse12.1 x64, kde4.7.2, ffmpeg 0.9.1-1.1

ffplay info:
Input #0, avi, from 'FILE0018.AVI':
  Metadata:
    date            : 2009-10-21
    ICRT            : 15:52:44
    comment         :
  Duration: 00:00:11.91, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 12362 kb/s
    Stream #0:0: Video: h264 (Main) (H264 / 0x34363248), yuv420p, 1280x720 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 29.97 tbn, 59.94 tbc
    Stream #0:1: Audio: adpcm_ima_wav ([17][0][0][0] / 0x0011), 48000 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 384 kb/s
  14.00 A-V: -0.013 fd=  24 aq=    0KB vq=    0KB sq=    0B f=0/0   f=0/0


so I can create a DVD.
They are off a Kogan video camera (read: pretty cheap, generic from SE Asia). Have tried various things to convert/publish and always seem to get a DVD that starts playing OK, but after a minute or 2 starts faltering, won't FF or jump to next chapter etc.
Couple of command lines I have tried:
ffmpeg -i <input filename> -target pal-dvd -sameq <output filename>
ffmpeg -i <input filename> -target pal-dvd <output filename>
etc (not very inventive... Know next-to-nothing about ffmpeg, but willing to learn!)
Have then tried to author/burn the DVD with kdenlive/devede.
Any help appreciated!

Thanks, John.

Anyone got any suggestions for this? Need any more info?
Would really appreciate some gentle nudges in the correct direction... :-)

Try using DVD Styler to author the DVD. This uses ffmpeg for transcoding
source material, if required, and does proper indexing so seeking etc
sghould work.

Thanks for the reply, Tim, really appreciated!
But.... when I try using DVDStyler, trying to do a really basic DVD,
it either crashes on me totally, or cutting it back even more and
running from a terminal, I get:

It looks like there is something "unusual" about your source file. Can
you try and make things work with a different file so you can see how it
should all go? That might help to narrow things down a bit.

Thanks for the idea, but I have had 'some' success previously with
some video files and seen how it should work, but these files are off
a new (relatively..) video camcorder, and trying to figure out the
best way to convert. Unfortunately it is a relatively cheap (Kogan -
A$300) recorder, and even the Windows supplied software does a very
mediocre job of converting them to 'anything'... But I thought they
would have been a relatively common format??
How can I progress this??
Thanks, John.

How about converting to an intermediate format using ffmpeg like x264?
You may even use devede, it uses mencoder to encode.
