OSS DVD extensions for cdrtoolsOSS DVD extensions for cdrtools 2.0 is a opensource extension to add DVD support to Jörg Schilling's cdrtools package.
A patch for cdrtools-2.0 is created and is actually a translation of a patch which can be found on abcpages.com. That patch is based upon cdrtools 1.11. The patch given here is based upon cdrtools-2.00.tar.gz. The objective is to give cdrtools dvd extensions without imposed limits, and also to have a Open Source solution to burn dvd's. Currently DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD+R DL support is added. As a convenience also SRPM and RPM packages for several RPM based Linux distro'sare given. Here's a usefull short HOWTO on setting up and using your CD/DVD writer for the first time, in case you detect problems.
For DVD+R see other projects. For instance checkout dvd+rw-tools. I wrote a small HOWTO on how to write SAO/DAO dvd iso's on DVD+R using growisofs. Recently OSS DVD functionality has been expanded with DVD+RW and DVD+R DL burning, with the release of cdrtools-2.01.01a01-ossdvd.patch.bz2.
OSS DVD Extensions and k3bOSS DVD Extensions works perfectly together with k3b, the magnificent swiss army knife burning tool for KDE/Linux. With the recent release of k3b 1.0.3 a new era on the Linux desktop has emerged, as this k3b version makes all these rip/shrink/edit tools on the Microsoft Windows [tm] platform redundant. That is if the DVD recordable is large enough to store the ripped decrypted iso. In fact k3b has gained the same functionality as DVD Decrypter, which as many know, has been banned for download.
