Use MPEG2 footage in iDVD
Authored by: krrcwl on Apr 14, '08 11:11:03AM

Hi, I realise this post is a little old now, and I'm now using iDVD 08, but I tried it anyway:

I created a multi-title iDVD project using some short dummy video for each of the six 'episodes'. Then I used ffmpegX to create VIDEO_TS folders for each of the original MPEG2 transport streams, which are my good sources. I've tested the output VOBs and they play fine in VLC. However, when I copy over the VTS_0*_1.VOB, VTS_0*_0.BUP and VTS_0*_0.IFO into the iDVD-authored VIDEO_TS and then test it with the DVD player, all I get is the first title playing, no menus. The same applies if I make a disk image containing the VIDEO_TS file and mount it.

If I DON'T copy over the VTS_0*_0.BUP and VTS_0*_0.IFO, the menus reappear but the titles then are too short (i.e. the length of the dummy media I used) and soundless.

I am somewhat confused as to what I did wrong :S

If you an shed any light, it would be much appreciated.
