dvdmaker

dvdmaker is a command line utility to generate DVD ISO images.

it's a simple shell script that invokes mencoder, dvdauthor and mkisofs or growisofs to convert *any* given video file to dvd-mpeg and write it as single-title without a menu on a DVD.

# write to DVD
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=/tmp/master.iso

the /tmp/dvd-project.xml file reads:
