Create a feature-rich DVD from VOB files
Authored by: tempel on Feb 25, '09 09:03:34AM

Quite a complex task. I've tried things like that before and gave up, as the information how to do this was indeed very hard to find for a Mac user.

I like to point out that there are alternatives, although not free, but easier to use in return:

I'd suggest checking out Toast from Roxio. It has quite extensive support for video formats, and can master DVDs, although with less control over the menus that what you get with the above described method.

I applaud the poster for posting this hint.
I just wonder why this hint got only a 1-star rating, but without any comments explaining why. Not fair to him, and not helpful to others reading this hint.

The ratings at macosxhints.com just suck. The best hints get 1-2 stars, while crap gets 4-4.5 stars.

What we really need is user moderation on the comments, rather than rating the hints (i.e., Digg or Slashdot style). Not necessarily to bury some commenters, but there are often some great hints in the comments, and I'd like to rate them higher than the rest of the comments.

I wonder if anyone finds them useful.

… there are often some great hints in the comments, and I'd like to rate them higher than the rest of the comments.

I couldn't agree more.

Also, both hints and comments have a broad diversity of ranges from simple to advanced, safe to risky, etc. without any method of categorization and filtering for those attributes. It's challenging to implement and usefully sustain something like that, though.

I've always wondered about the ratings also. How about change from:

Rate this hint: [ 1 ยท 2 ยท 3 ยท 4 ยท 5 ]

To:

Rate this hint: (Worst) [ 1 ยท 2 ยท 3 ยท 4 ยท 5 ] (Best)
