The general idea behind dvdwizard was to automate the creation of a full-featured Video-DVD structure from a given MPEG-file and make it as easy as possible. On the other hand, it should be flexible enough to let the more experienced user adjust the looks of the DVD to his or her liking.
The first version of dvdwizard is dated way back to the beginning of 2004. At that time, Wolfgang Wershofen bought his first DVD burner to prevent my harddisc from overflowing with video materials, he recorded from TV and Digicam.
Wolfgang soon found out that dvdauthor is the program to use for DVD-Authoring on Linux and that the basic task - creating an DVD file structure from MPEG files - was fairly simple. But when it came to creating more sophisticated DVDs with menus and chapters and the like, it became quite a hassle and very time consuming.
