Converting files

So I got a few music video files I fancy burning to video DVD but I don't know the precedure to convert the files into video TS or VOB (I think) files. when I burn normally it automatically burns the ISO image, which doesn't allow me to watch on my DVD player. Any Ideas please????

Hi, there.

I use 2 apps.
1) To convert .avi or other video format to DVD (IFO, VOB) format, I use DeVeDe:
http://www.rastersoft.com/programas/devede.html
It generates the correct dvd tree and writes it on an ISO image which can be burned on a DVD media with k3b, for instance.
2) However, DeVeDe still is not a good option as an authoring system, mostly because it doesn't create a usable DVD menu. The solution I found was to use DeVeDe to convert the movies to mpeg-2 (use the option: "Only convert film files to compliant MPEG files") and then use a proper authoring system to create the DVD tree, along with the menu. In this case, I'm using DVDStyler:
http://www.dvdstyler.de/index.html
which can be downloaded from a Fedora repository (extras or other, don't recall which one).

Hope it helps...
