Im looking for a software to convert any video files (avi, mpeg, etc) in a full-compatible DVD (that can be read on the mosts of dvd reader).

For windows, i bought ConvertXtoDVD and is really good, especially becose let you customize the chapters, join many files in one, edit the titles, etc.. in a really easy way.

There is something like for Ubuntu?

ConvertXtoDVD works pretty good under wine, has worked well several times for me ;) – user155695 Dec 1 '09 at 12:58
Thanks, i'll try under wine, but i'll prefer something full-linux compatible, im not an ubuntu expert and wine somtime proc some errors.. and i take looong time to understand ho to fix it (that's why im totally switch on ubuntu, want to learn it) – Strae Dec 1 '09 at 15:18

I used to use ConvertXtoDVD as well.

On Linux I've found DeVeDe to be the best alternative.

+1 DeVeDe is awesome. I always use it for just this purpose. – codeLes Dec 1 '09 at 14:47
+1 Simple & still relatively complete. – DaveParillo Dec 1 '09 at 15:35

DeVeDe is a great tool - super simple. One area it's weak in is creating DVD menus.

Dvdauthor is a command line utility that has a ton of capability. Q DvdAuthor is a simple gui that handles the complexity of writing dvdauthor input files & invoking dvdauthor for you. It can't do everything, dvdauthor does, but it's easier if you're new to dvdauthor. It includes a template dialog to help make menus. The website has some menu templates.

I'll try out this one as well, thanks! – Strae Dec 1 '09 at 17:03

I don't know the software you are mentioning as I am not a Windows user, but have a look at this question/answer... I believe it might contain some useful information for your case.
