Hello list, moderators! I’m totally new to this topic.
What I want to accomplish is to convert video download file into a dvd I can play on a dvd player. I used the firefox download helper to downoad an mp4 file.
I tried a few manual cli tools like ffmpeg, but I don’t end up with anything like what’s on a store bought dvd.
dvdauthor run thru it’s gui, seems to get close to what I want, but it has dependency problems. I think it’s trying to preview what it’s proposed to burn when the trouble starts.
First the gui needed xine, which I found in the opensuse repositories, Now xine wants libvdpau_nvidia.so. My gfx is intel with Driver: “i915”. I have libvdpau1-0.6-2.4.1.x86_64 installed, but xine isn’t happy with it. The whole error message looks like this:
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory vo_vdpau: Can't create vdp device : No vdpau implementation. libdvdread: Encrypted DVD support unavailable. libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
I haven’t started looking for libdvdread. One suggestion I found was to link libvdpau_nvidia.so to libvdpau1-0.6-2.4.1.x86_64. That didn’t work. Another suggestion was to add the nvidia driver repository. That library isn’t in the 12.3 driver repro.
These are the dvd rpms I have loaded:
frank rpm -qa | grep -i dvd libdvdread3-0.9.7-7.1.x86_64 lsdvd-0.16-2.1.x86_64 openSUSE-release-dvd-12.3-1.7.x86_64 dvd+rw-tools-7.1-54.1.1.x86_64 libdvdread4-4.2.0-6.1.1.x86_64 libdvdnav4-4.2.0-5.1.1.x86_64 dvdauthor07-0.7.0+-2.2.x86_64 DVDStyler-2.4.3-1.8.x86_64 frank
DVDStyler is the gui for dvdauthor. I’m running the gui in the preview mode. Possibly I can burn the DVD without getting the preview display to work, but I had to burn a bunch of plastic platters!
Any suggestions to make DVDStyler work? Heboland.
