Parent article: The Grumpy Editor's video journey part 3: DVD authoring
There is no reason why DVD authors should have to work at this level; dvdauthor is essentially an assembler which, while being absolutely essential to do most of the heavy lifting, should be hidden from most polite company.
There is at least one good use case for running dvdauthor directly: suppose
you just want to make a DVD that, when inserted, starts to play the videos
directly in sequence without menues, just like a plain old CD. This can
be specified with a simple XML file that basically just lists your
DVD-compatible MPEG files.
The dvdauthor documentation provides an example. With a tiny amount of
editing you can also add chapter marks.
Such simple DVD:s may actually be better for granny communications.
