DVD-Create project launch
(2002-06-13) DVD-Create project started by sending out a reward request to a couple of mailing lists.
The project was to create a limited DVD editing framework and the reward was a DVD-Recorder and 100 blank DVD-R disks.
However the slim response convinced me (Olaf Beck) that if I wanted this kind of software I had to do it my self.
My motivation for the project was to be able to:
- Create a DVD-Video from my home videos created by a miniDV camcorder.
- Make a backups of my favorite DVD's since future scratches may render them useless.
- Create a DVD-Video from my networked TIVO unit - i.e. downloading a TIVO "MPEG" stream and turn it into a DVD-Video.
First preliminary goals is to be able to create a DVD-Video image that can be burned to a DVD-/+R(W) disk from an existing source.
Mkisofs from the cdrtools already has support for UDF and sorting of DVD-Video files - hence a perfect candidate to work on.
