I have a load of media files on my PC, mostly AVI/MKV and some mpegs.

On Windows, I would use ConvertXToDVD to convert these to DVD format, and to burn to disc. That application also lets you save a bit of space on the DVD to put the original file in its AVI format on as well.

How can I do this on Linux? What are the alternatives to this Windows application? I could try to run ConvertXtoDVD under Wine but I would prefer to find a native Linux solution.

DVDStyler is good at this sort of thing. It's free software, available under the GPL. I know that it works well under Ubuntu.
