How to burn youtube video onto DVD disc that plays on a typical DVD player

Post#1 by tim » 15 Mar 2018, 07:27


My aunt asked me to burn a Youtube video my cousin playing piano.

If I was on Windows and the DVD burner worked then I would just use WinX DVD Author which i used to do before.
But the burner (DVD drive) on my Windows machine is broken or something it won't burn anything.
So I had to try on Linux (Ubuntu). For some reason when I tried different things to convert mp4 or avi to DVD format it kept complaining about area limitation on my DVD player. It's just a youtube avi or mp4. I don't know how the region got in there that prevented me from viewing the DVD burned on my DVD player. After trying look up region code I gave up on that path it was too much of a mess to play with region code.
I know WinX DVD Author created DVDs that played on my DVD player before so I took this path and it works.

Because WinX DVD Author didn't recognize my burner in Ubuntu, I use it only for converting and authoring the DVD.
  1. Use WinX DVD Author (In Wine in Ubuntu)
    1. to convert .mp4 to VOB
    2. to convert VOB to DVD structure
      1. that has AUDIO_TS folder
      2. and VIDEO_TS folder
  2. Use K3b (Ubuntu)
    1. Create DVD project
      1. that has AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS
      2. copy everything from VIDEO_TS (from 1.b.ii) to K3b's VIDEO_TS
      3. copy everything from AUDIO_TS (from 1.c.i) to K3b's AUDIO_TS (probably nothing to copy)
      4. Create Image Only to get ISO.
    2. Burn Image and select ISO (created in 2.a.iv)
That's it, you'll get a DVD that plays in your normal DVD player.

This is here, so that if I ever have to burn DVDs for my aunt again I can.

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

Well, I just tried this process on Ubuntu 18.04 and can't seem to get WinX DVD Author to run in wine.
I think it might be my wine install. But then I tried the devede route.
  1. Used ffmpeg to convert .mkv to .mp4
  2. Used devede (from command line) then it starts up GUI to convert mp4 to DVD disk with a bunch of files but there is an .ISO file created after it's done.
  3. Then used k3b to burn .ISO to DVD
