    tried to play a dvd and go this with vlc

    Just for the hell of it I booted back into windows and tried to burn a dvd and failed too, tried to play a dvd too and it wont play. I think the dvd burner is on it way out.

    A blank disc should show an icon on the desktop in GNOME, if you're settings are set to default.

    You're DVD Burner is linked to /dev/sr0

    I'd still like to see the output from cdrecord. This will show quite a bit of information about the drive.

    The dvd burn was good but the video was freezing every 10 seconds or so. I think the cause of the freezing was dvdlab pro being run with wine. Is there a linux native product that works like dvdlab for creating the vobs with m2v and ac3?

    The disc was burnt correctly. mkisofs and cdrecord did their job correctly. The disc was burnt at the requested speed as well.

    If it still doesn't play, it's an authoring issue. Try DVDStyler (www.getdeb.net)

    I edited my post above at the bottom. but doesn't DVDStyler only work with mpg? Is there a way to mux the m2v and ac3 to a mpg?

    No, it supports elementary streams (.m2v m1v wav mp2 ac3 dts srt) or mpg/vob. DVDStyler prefers demultiplexed streams. If you import a multiplexed stream, it gets demultiplexed.

    ---edit--

    By the way if you need/want to multiplex/demultiplex

    mplex to multiplex
    mpgtx to demultiplex

    mplex -f 8 -V -o output.mpg infile.ac3 infile.m2v
    mpgtx -d -b /path/to/output/file input.mpg

    passing one of the commands with a -h will give you the syntax, or try
    man [program name]
    to read the documentation of the program.

    If the disc mounts, and the files are readable, your drive should be good.

    Like in windows, Linux needs certain files to play back dvds. If you're looking to play back commercial DVDs, you'll need a piece of software that may or may not be legal in some countries to bypass the copy protection. You can grab it from www.videolan.org (libdvdcss). There are other files that come in handy, dvdnav, lsdvd, dvdread, which may or may not be needed by your player.

    Totem doesn't do DVD well, mplayer is good at playing titles, but menu support is lacking. VLC is most likely your best bet.

  11. Hello

    Thanks for the useful thread on dvd burning... I recently switched to Linux mint, and my ability to burn dvds has gone straight into the gutter. Using HT Fireman under windows I think I got one dud in maybe 130-150 tries. Same burner, same discs, two out of three duds. And burn speeds that vary all over the place, from bytes per second to 6x in brief bursts.

    Checking some parameters as per the suggestions in the thread (half the battle in Linux-- figuring out what to type. Worse than java) I came up with:

    michele@michele-P4V88 ~ $ sudo apt-get install mkisofs
    [sudo] password for michele:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    "genisoimage" selected intead of "mkisofv" "mkisofs"Note,
    genisoimage is most recent version.
    ...

    michele@michele-P4V88 ~ $ sudo apt-get install cdrecord
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Note "wodim" selected instead ofi "cdrecord"
    wodim is most recent version
    ...

    Which means, if I understand the thread comments correctly, that I am stuck with the older, junkier software...

    Any way to get over to what they recommend in the post, ie, cdrecord and mkisovf?

    Thanks ahead of time!!

    Hi michelle, wodim is a fork of the cdrecord software. Most linux distributions use wodim nowadays and most of the time the command "cdrecord" is linked to wodim, see here:
    [charles@amdx2 ~]$ wodim --version
    Cdrecord-yelling-line-to-tell-frontends-to-use-it-like-version 2.01.01a03-dvd
    Wodim 1.1.11

    Now I suppose you're using Ubuntu and brasero? Why not simply try something different? Xfburn perhaps? Unless you drop to the command line, it doesn't get more basic than Xfburn.
