Cinelerra was one that I've seen here on the mailing list recommended
before. I haven't tried it personally yet.

Thank you Ron.  Tovid looks like an easy way to create DVD's from videos.
Interesting that while it is a command line program, it seems that it is
easier to use than the GUI programs I was trying to use.
This should solve my creating DVD's issues.

Now the issue of editing the .mpg files.  Anyone have luck chopping up a
video.  What programs did you use.

Share and Enjoy
