videotrans is a set of scripts that convert a movie file in any format that mplayer understands to a DVD-compatible VOB file, doing all the necessary conversions automatically. An automatic DVD menu generator is also provided.

Release Notes: This release includes fix-ups to the manual pages. Installation of files (especially their modes) is better. There is an extra hint for a certain error condition. The C software now compiles on Ubuntu Oneiric again.
Release Notes: All sorts of clean-up was done. Some long-waiting feature requests have been implemented. In general, the program should work on more systems now.
Release Notes: A bug has been fixed in the function library that detects audio and video parameters. This bug caused the audio rate of a given audio to be wrong sometimes. ffmpeg cannot resample from 5 to 6 channels when encoding AC3 files, and MPlayer cannot do this conversion either. Therefore, this release uses the number of channels from the source, if this number is greater than 2. The parameters for ffmpeg have been changed (the 'k' in the -ab option has been added). The determination of the number of audio channels in the input has been fixed. This was sometimes incorrectly zero.
Release Notes: A bug was fixed in movie-title where movie-title would call ImageMagick's convert with wrong parameters, producing a defective PNG which would cause spumux (in the dvdauthor package) to crash later on in the building process. Whether this would happen or not seems fairly random, but it was a big nuisance that affected a lot of users. movie-rip-tv.com now works again with tv.com's new URL format.
Release Notes: There was a bug in movie-rip-tv.com where the summary of an episode would not be grabbed if there was a movie icon next to the summary. The newest version of ImageMagick does not work in the way that other versions of ImageMagick worked regarding the transparent color of the overlay image used in the DVD menu generation in the movie-title program. This has now been changed to use PNG instead of GIF, and should work in all versions of ImageMagick.
