    What do you recommend as a good DVD burning/authoring app?


    There seems to be many apps out there, but it's sometimes difficult to narrow down which is the best overall. I use Xine for video playback and now I would like a good authoring program .

    For Burning K3b is pretty good.

    For burning DVDs and CDs:

    In KDE, K3B is tha s***!
    For Gnome, I think Gnome Baker is quite honest.


    For authoring dvd:
    -qdvdauthor in KDE
    -dvdstyler in Gnome

    Of course, you can use any of those apps in either KDE or Gnome...

    Nothing beats K3b for burning. As for authoring, I have no idea.

    Well I'm not using either KDE or GNOME, actually I'm using Fluxbox as my WM. I also have heard good things about K3B and the GNOME equivalent, but I was trying to find an app that not only supports as many features as possible but can also bypass any of the ridiculous DRM (Digital Rights Management) crap.
    An app like the infamous "dvdXcopy" from the now out of business "3-2-1-Studios". Which allowed you to make exact copies of DVD movies including menu tables, extra features, etc..etc..
