From mkv to vob - How to convert a matroska file to dvd in Linux Fedora

  • add the rmp fusion repository. here a simple tutorial to do it.
  • as root install avidemux, and some other useful software: yum install avidemux lame gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly dvdauthor
  • launch Avidemux: you 'll find a shortcut to Avidemux in your Application Menu -> Sound & Video
  • open your .mkv file. choose "NO" at this message

  • choose "YES" at this message

  • Select Auto -> DVD and click "OK"
  • Select File -> Save -> Save Video... and save it as your_file_name_here.mpeg
  • at the end of the task, create a new xml file with this structure (obviously you have to replace the filename with your mpeg filename) and save it as movie.xml:

    <vob file="filename.mpeg" />

  • in your terminal move to the folder where you saved the mpeg file
  • not as root dvdauthor -o outputfolder -x movie.xml
  • in outputfolder you'll find AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS with the vob files ready to be burned
