All of the UCB episodes, eleven hours of video+sound, on one disc. Oh yeah! And now...

Kev's Guide to Burning DVDs in Linux
It's been a long confusing road, but I've arrived. It is possible to burn DVDs in the Linux OS without paying Jörg Schilling $100.

Step 1: Download cdrtools 1.11a11.
Step 2: Patch cdrtools with the cdrecord dvd patch
Step 3: Burn DVD with cdrecord like normal except:
  • driver=mmc_mdvd
  • Add the option -packet
It's that easy!

Download them yourself! There's an ftp with all of them, I forget where. Easy to find though.

No no, it's a DVD-R, burned with a consumer DVD-RW burning drive. This used to take 6 CD-Rs! :)

IT DOESN'T FIT! I'd need more layers before I could consider buying a dvd-rw. :P

I don't even want to think about putting these on cds...

when you can play dvdr's in a settop box, i might consider getting one.. until then they have no use to me..

DVD-R plays in nearly all consumer DVD players. It's the other formats like DVD-RAM and DVD+RW that have problems.

Re:

But is there a make cycle after the patching? Or are no sources involved?
