DVD Authoring

July 24, 2009

Meet DVD Flick. The first free open source software solution to catch my eye for creating DVD videos. Much to my surprise it even supports the ever-popular Matroska (.mkv) container file format. Menu creation, video and audio recoding, and subtitles are all supported. After the software has finished with this it then supports authoring and finalizing the DVD. I’m trying my first experiment with it as we speak and will hopefully update with good results after I attempt to play this on a DVD player.

Update: A few days later
Okay so it works, but the video playback was a bit choppy on my PlayStation 2. This is the only system I’ve tested it on so far so perhaps other players might do better, but that’s doubtful in my opinion as the “chops” are very regular as in being at the exact same place. Not unwatchable by far but it was a little disappointing. Maybe I’ll have better luck if I play with the settings and try again. YMMV.
