How do I re-create a DVD from the backup created by vobcopy? I have searched and I have read howto after howto and I still am stuck. Between ffmpeg this, dvdauthor that, qdvdauthor this to, I'm confused.
I have written a script to properly prepare the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS directories and to parse the filenames and copy the vob files saved with vobcopy to VTS_XX_Y.VOB and place them along with the IFO files in the VIDEO_TS directory. I get that I'm missing the BUP files and that somehow dvdauthor is supposed to recreate them, but that is where I get stuck.
When I try and use qdvdauthor, it tries to completely ffmpeg decode/encode the original vob files to another separate directory. Why? I already have the vob files under VIDEO_TS, they were just ripped, why decode and reencode them? Seems nuts.
The files that I have from ripping are:
19:42 nirvana:/home/samba/video> find myvideo -type f
I have moved and renamed the files to:
20:44 nirvana:/home/samba/video> find authdir/ -type f
From reading, it seems that I now need to create the BUP files and then use mkisofs to create the iso and then burn with growisofs. How do I create the BUP files?? That's where I'm stuck. This has to be easy and staring me right in the face, but I can't see the forest for the trees. What say the dvd gurus?
