If your holiday videos and TV recordings are fillng up your home computer, burn them onto a DVD with Kmediafactory.

You don’t need to be an expert to put your holiday videos and TV recordings on a DVD. A simple DVD tool for Linux is KDE’s Kmediafac tory [1]. Kmediafactory, which was au thored by Finnish developer Petri Dam sten, let’s you create a video DVD in just three simple steps. Installation Although it is quite simple to install Kmediafactory, you need to make sure that a number of multimedia dependen cies are addressed (Xine, Dvdauthor, Mjpegtools, Libdvdread, Dvd-slide show). It is a good idea to use an online repository as the installation source. After adding the repository as a YaST in stallation source, or adding the reposi tory in Apt/ Smart, you can install Kme diafactory along with the required multi media packages.
