Start here... http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML-single/en/MPlayer.html#menc-feat-vcd-dvd In particular, scroll down to section 14.8.5 for some "recipes" to create the DVD compatible video then you'll want multimedia/dvdauthor to create the disc image and finally sysutils/dvd+rw-tools for burning You might want to look at multimedia/dvdstyler as a GUI front end to dvdauthor and, depending on your set-up/dvd writer it might do the burning from the GUI too. It's not exactly point'n'shoot but all you need should be there. -- Dave _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
