dvdauthor (.sourceforge.net) is the one I use for burning MythTV content
to DVD. There's a bunch of options for creating menus and such, which I
neither use nor understand. I just create a one-chapter-per-file
filesystem in the "dvd" subdirectory, like this:
dvdauthor -o dvd foo1.mpg foo2.mpg...
dvdauthor -o dvd -T (generates TOC)
Then the "dvd" directory is put into a UDF filesystem with mkisofs,
and bob's your uncle.
If the MPEGs aren't already in DVD format, do this with mjpegtools:
mpeg2desc -a 0 -o audio.mpa -v 0 -o video.mpv < original.mpg
mplex -f 8 -o foo%d.mpg autio.mpa video.mpv
This pulls the original apart into audio and video streams, then
puts them back together in mplex's format #8, which has space for
something or other VOB-related.
