    Question DVD Burner in Linux?


    I'm looking for a DVD burner that I can burn dvd-video with, not just data dvds. K3b has an option to write data DVDs, but I need actual dvd-video that you can play back on a dvd player, like a linux version of Nero, for example. Anyone know of one?

    Actually, there is a Linux version of Nero:

    I'm sure there's a free Linux program that will do the trick too.. I just don't know any off hand.

    Well I don't really want to pay for that, I can burn dvds in windows but I just use linux more and it would be more convenient to burn them in linux.

    Wow, I just looked through K3b again and it does in fact have DVD burning. Thanks! I just looked at the main menu and it said dvd data cd data audio cd and copy cd, nothing else, but in File - New Project, there's options for DVD video.
