Qdvdauthor Package - New Dependency Needed?
Mario, I did not realize "mplayer" is only required for converting
video formats. Well, I am embarrassed! And, I ended up using ffmpeg
to convert formats by the time I finished with DVD-author project,
Just to double-check your statement, I tried removing the "mplayer"
package and created a new DVD-video archive, in DVD-author, with an
existing, converted MPEG file. It surely worked, just as you said it
Sorry to trouble the mailing list with this concern. Happy holiday, all.
