Summary: DVD Authoring Software Programs Fail and/or Crash
during Decoding and/or Encoding
Product: openSUSE 11.4
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Update Problems

This issue first became known via the use of DVDStyler (2.0.1-1.5) whenever an
update occurred to the FFMPEG package (0.9-1.1) along with its dependencies. I
am unsure if other updates went out to similar multimedia/DVD Authoring
packages. All were via PackMan.
Subsequently, attempting to use DVDStyler resulted in multiple encoding,
transcoding, and/or menu creation errors to the point I resorted to exploring
other DVD Authoring options. 99% of the files are in .mp4 format and transcode
to DVD format (.VOB,.VTS, etc.) prior to rendering an entire project for me. IT
would then burn to disc as designed and on to the next we go.... DVDStyler
appears to be the best program for me at least as far as MP4 files were
concerned. All the others I had issues with prior to finding DVDStyler.
I found ManDVD, 2ManDVD, QDVD, etc. Prior to installing anything else, I
ensured I captured a good backtrace or logfile for DVDStyler in an effort to
assist with this problem.
As FYI in case this doesn't come to mind immediately, apparently there is a
conflict in the community about dvdauthor and dvdauthor07; one will supercede
the other which will then cause grief for the other. Example: DVDStyler uses
dvdauthor07 while ManDVD and 2ManDVD uses dvdauthor. It appears DVDStyler, the
one that works best & the easiest of course, is the oddball & uses just
dvdauthor07 in its list of necessary files.
Moving forward, uninstalled DVDStyler along with dvdauthor07, and installed
ManDVD, dvdauthor, dependencies, and 2ManDVD. All went smooth and no issues
whatsoever other than a lower-quality rendering. After the FIRST DVD, I have no
longer been able to render, transcode, encode, and/or any other function that
is necessary to create the necessary DVD files and subsequently burn to DVD. I
have attempted to utilize the render only option and record to DVD later to no
I have also obtained a backtrace or strace as a log file for the errors
occurring with the aforementioned also. If these two files are insufficient,
there are 50MB+ log files as well however I did not want to overload; if they
are wanted, please ask and I will upload the additional strace/log/backtrace
Nevertheless, I did my due-diligence and searched the forums, found several
tips and tried them without success, however there is little information
regarding the latest versions of the affected software, libraries, etc. I also
cannot revert to prior versions to see if I can once again use these DVD
Authoring programs as designed.
Another tip I found was to add the VLC repository, run package-manager, and see
if a "GIT" version was available to any package results from searching "DVD,
MPEG, and others". I was able to find and install FFMPEG 0.9.0.git.20111220-1.1
along with several other MPEG/DVD packages and found these to be unsuccessful
also. I have basically removed everything and started from scratch as well
since I cannot revert to previous version(s); this was in hopes of removing
anything that would possibly interfere with the latest updates made to the
entire video/audio/multimedia area.
Thank you for your efforts regarding this matter and feel free to contact me
for additional information that I am sure you will need. There has to be a
connection, i.e. BUG, between the FFMPEG package and DVD Authoring as every
single time the update comes through, this will go on and on until another
update comes through or some miracle occurs and it just starts working again.
Regardless, I remain committed to assisting all I can and will perform any and
all requests upon receipt.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any DVD Authoring Program & add MP4 files to the project.
2. Go through the program's process to encode MP4 files being authored & setup
your menus for DVD format.
3. Render project & if it does not fail during rendering, proceed to burning
the DVD and the failure will occur here at the latest.
Encoding, Decoding, and/or Authoring Fails. Subsequent failure to create DVD as
All necessary DVD Files rendered and project burned to DVD (or at option, save
these files to burn later).
Additional Log File(s) are available upon request or I can re-run to produced
desired info. 2 of said files are 50MB+ and I did not want to bog-down the
system with these unless they are absolutely necessary and/or requested.
