For me, k3b has refused to burn certain video DVDs. Nero burns them without
complaint. I have yet to figure out what it is about the particular DVDs
that gives k3b a problem. The symptoms are that as soon as you click OK in
the burn dialog, the first message is something like "Error! Can't determine
ISO size." and then it aborts. The DVDs that I have then burnt using Nero
(which makes no such complaint) play fine. As a note, I use dvdauthor and
qdvdauthor to create the DVD structures. However, the video sources from the
problem DVDs come various unknown sources (I collect Jazz performances from
European and Japanese TV). This does not seem to be a PAL vs. NSTC problem,
nor a full vs. wide screen problem.
BTW anything interesting is very hard to do with dvdauthor, and although
qdvdauthor helps simplify this, it is very, very buggy. I can't wait to get
decent DVD authoring tools for Linux.
