    Default App for creating DVD?

    I need an application which will create DVD for me, and I am pretty lame in these things.
    I have nasty sony home theater which does play only DVDs from shop and I cannot play anything I record (so far).

    So, my problem is:
    I have MPEG video file (mp4), and I want to make DVD format with all that AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders and files in it, which will record me a DVD which will play on my DVD player.
    To be simple as possible, something like: MPEG_file -> CLICK -> DVD ready

    Even better: MPEG_FILE+SUBTITLE FILE -> CLICK -> DVD ready...

    LOL

    Name me app if you know, please.

    There's loads of options:

    Devede
    Man2DVD

    would be the best to start with. Both are available from the Packman repo, as well as from Software.openSUSE.org

    Devede is simple: put the MPEG in, DVD comes out. Never failed on my standalone players. Sometimes if a DVD does not work, I rip it, put the ripped file through Devede to create a new DVD.
    Man2DVD has a lot more features.

    For more professional work, you could try Kdenlive or Cinelerra.

    Not right away, no. Start exploring Kdenlive, it's a full featured video editor, that's capable of adding subtitles AFAIK. Start simple, add new things one by one, and you'll get there.

    Hmm, I mean, what is the procedure?
    I make DVD, but not ISO, then I add subs, or... add susbs to MPEG with kdenlive and then make DVD?

    I got it..
    there are various ways to make it.

    Devede is the easiest option if you want to create a DVD with subtitles. Avidemux is better, in my opinion if you want to manipulate video, re-convert, glue subtitles etc into a video file.
