Here is what I do.  I don't pretend this is the
only way to do it,  or even the best.

First,  I create the number of .vob files that will
in 4.5GB.  That usually 8, 30 minutes shows with
commercials cut.

If I want them in a particular order on the DVD, I
add the file names into a file ( called filelist )
in the desired order:



Using dvdauthor,  I start creating the DVD file

dvdauthor -o iso `cat filelist`
dvdauthor -T -o iso

Next,  I change file permissions to the DVD standard:

chmod -f 500 iso/*
chmod -f 400 iso/VIDEO_TS/*

Make the ISO image:

mkisofs -udf -dvd-video -o mydvd.iso iso

Then I burn to DVD:

growisofs -T /dev/scd0=mydvd.iso -dvd-compat

growisofs should create the .iso image for me, but
when I do it that way,  all the file names in the
DVD structure,  like VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS become
lowercase.  My DVD player ignores the DVD.  I
do the two step process to maintain all upper case.

If anyone knows how to use growisofs and maintain
case,  please email me.

dvdauthor and growisofs.  If you have them installed,
nuvexport will ask you if you want to execute them.
However, it will assume one show per disc.
