You are welcome. Thanks for cheering me on, I usually get bug reports or feature requests ;)

This release focuses on bug fixes and usability improvements.

It is hard to believe how many issues I found trying it on another (dual-core) laptop.

I think that once Undo/Redo works 100% and I found and fixed some more bugs I have reached 2.0.0.

Are you sure xine is showing the correct length. The reason is that I know that xine-lib has issues determining the correct length of mpeg / ac3 and some other formats.

ffmpeg ( I.e. MPlayer ) is much better in telling the length of a video.

You can change the used backend under [Tools -> Setup -> Media Engine]

Setting it to QMPlayerWidget will most likely result in better values but will also be a bit slower.

Hope that helps.

yep Wall-e is a great movie. A bit cheesy but real nice.

Also I hope that by ow you got yourself a hot version of 1.6.1, as this solves some general issues plus it makes it easier to build and install :)

I am on it.

Currently downloading 2008.1 and will install on VirtualBox.

I have not encountered this issue, but then I have not created such a large DVD in a long time.

Can you transcode the input files on the command line okay ?

If that is the case, then it might be the buffer in the Qt widget is not as scalable as I expected. - Sep 28 2008
Make sure your MediaBackend is set up correctly [ Tools->Setup ].

It works like a charm on my Computr.

I fixed this issue yesterday and submitted a patch to dvd-slideshow.

Oh but it does. It'll use the default KDE file dialogs if in KDE. I am also detecting the Desktop directory used by KDE.

Thank you,

I fixed this in the code so the next release should take this into account.

Hey, you have the same distro I am using.

In general you can send me the file created through [ Tools -> Feedback ... ]

However for this problem you should be fine simply deleting

Let me know how it stacks up against GFD. I saw the program on VideoHelp and it seems as powerful as QDVDAuthor.

thank you again for your help. The fix is in CVS and as soon as SourceForge's shell access is up again I'll update the progress page.

Also I am pushing for the first release candidate which I want to release the coming week. - Feb 23 2007
No, you would have to get the video on HD first.

thank you. You are using the MPlayerWidget as the MediaBackend, right ?

I found an issue with the quering of the values for audio and fixed it.

Adding an audio file is now instantanously.

I have not touched the slideshow part in months / years. I could never find the time to properly fix all outstanding issues.

This is bad and good. Bad in the sense that QSlideshow is a mess.
Good in that I focused on the main functionality of QDVDAuthor.

I have big plans for the slideshow part (and for QDVDAuthor for that matter). When I make the jump to Qt 4.2 I will def. rewrite QSlideshow from scratch.

I am pretty experienced with OpenGL as well and will add OpenGL support for transitions etc. Though Qt's new rendering engine does a pretty good job in offering all types of freedom (incl SVG support)

I am planing to provide a very, very simple way for the user to add all media (Video, audio, images and shorts from the digital camera) and have QDVDAuthor create a full blown DVD with chapter menus etc. I hope by the time this is all working we will have some 100+ templates available.

Anyhow, I'm getting ahead of myself here.

Stay tuned,

try adding
#include <stdlib.h>

at the top of that file and re-compile

configurator will find libvlc.a and add those libs to the dependencies (as they are needed on SuSE 9.2).

Currently this is very static since I only recently found a way to compile VLC libs in.

The message tells me that you do not have neither moc nor qmake in your path.

You should install qt-devel and set QTDIR.

Or if qt-devel is installed then include the bin directory into your path so configure can find moc and qmake.

Ps. Try the latest source from CVS. It has a ton of changes over the 0.0.10 code base. - Sep 18 2005
The problem is most likely your mpeg file but I also heared of this problem due to an old dvdauthor.

Try to use the latest dvdauthor version first as this is the easiest solution (0.6.11)

I changed the minimum requirement back to Qt 3.1 for your pleasure.

I did also fix some other minor bugs in the compile process.

I hope it'll work now for you.

- Nov 09 2004
I increased to Qt 3.2 only because of the GUIs I create with designer.

There is no technical reason why 3.1 should not work with some twisting the *.ui files.

But you can simply d/l the latest Qt library and install in a local folder, set the QTDIR and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment and compile. That should do the trick. - Nov 02 2004

you can disable the GUI by providing the appropriate input to configure.

please check out
> configure --help

Also there have been a ton of bug fixes which will be included in 0.0.8 (coming soon) - Oct 28 2004
