I would like to burn a music DVD rather than a music CD, basically a collection of songs of my choice, for the car. Unfortunately K3b only allows me to burn CD’s as a audio medium and not DVD’s. When I try to burn songs on a DVD, I can only do it as a data DVD and that will not be played on the player in the car. A side note here, my car/SUV is a 11 year old Rav4, still in very good condition.

Silly question probably, but your car’s stereo wouldn’t handle mp3’s, by
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying.
The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
None of those links are openSUSE specific, so it will be necessary to search for openSUSE equivalents of the applications being used. Don’t forget to use ‘webpin’ as a resource for searching for precompiled applications: Webpin
Reference dvda-author, I notice from the link Uwe provided, when one goes to the download page: SourceForge.net: Files
and then goes to the latest version, one can download an rpm or a .deb file.
The rpm says this:
dvda-author - dvda-author creates high-definition DVD-AUDIO discs
Project Page: http://
dvda-author creates high-definition DVD-Audio discs with navigable DVD-Video zone from DVD-Audio zone
Supported input audio types: .wav .flac
-creates a 3-group DVD-Audio disc (legacy syntax):
dvda-author -g file1.wav file2.flac -g file3.flac -g file4.wav
-creates a hybrid DVD disc with both AUDIO_TS mirroring audio_input_directory and VIDEO_TS imported from directory VID, outputs disc structure to directory DVD_HYBRID and links video titleset #2 of VIDEO_TS to AUDIO_TS:
dvda-author -i ~/audio/audio_input_directory -o DVD_HYBRID -V ~/Video/VID -T 2
Both types of constructions can be combined.
and it appears to have been created on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is a debian based distribution and they do not use rpms to my recollection, so its possibly been converted to rpm by some app such as alien:
RPM group: devel
Packager: Fab Nicol
Build time: Sat Nov 1 23:41:07 2008
Build host: ubuntu
Source RPM: dvda-author-08.09-12.src.rpm
but looking at the directories and file list, and i think this rpm should work (assuming you do not have dependency problems when trying to install):
Thanks for the tips, especially OldCPU. Sorry I haven’t been here for a couple of days, I was in St.Maarten for my X-mas shopping. (Where’s St.Maarten you ask, oh, just north of where I live, in the Caribbean, of-course. Merry Christmas everyone.<:)
