Our family has been using a digital camcorder for years (with an internal HD for recording). Which means that we have several hard disks filled with our movie files.
I want for us to burn all of our movies onto a DVD.
There is software that lets you do that: you open the dialog, you click on the video files you want to burn, and then it burns the DVD. (It will let you put captions on the DVDs using their GUI, it will add a "Scene selection" page, etc.)
How can I do this automatically/programatically? I have a list with each movie file along with a caption.
What I want is to:
- Read from this list
- Use an algorithm to figure out how much would fit on a DVD, and how to group the individual videos (which I can do.)
- Use some program which will allow me to specifiy which videos to burn to the DVD, and crease some sort of "scene selection" page.
- Create an ISO
Mind you, the scene selection doesn't need to be fancy - it doesn't need to have thumbnails of the video (but it would be nice), though it should display the caption.
What software exists to do this? Is there a commandline utility? Or a GUI with a cmdline interface?
My preference is something linux-based, but I also have windows available.
Basically, the only "human" intervention I want is to physically pop the DVD in the drive and remove it when its done.
What kinds of solutions are there? (Or things that I can use for any of the intermediate steps?)
