At our video production sites we need to create a Video DVD daily. We would like to automate the whole process.

Looking for software that can help with the following scenario:

  1. Operator sticks in a blank DVD
  2. Operator clicks script icon and walks away
  3. Script tells software what video files to use (software converts file if needed)
  4. Script gives software a description of DVD menus to create:

    Menu #1
      Text = "Video file #1"
      On-click, plays "somefile.mpg", then "somefile2.mpg", etc
  5. Script tells software to burn the DVD.

  6. Optionally, a DVD label gets printed.
  • Have you messed around with Nero ? It has loads of features and I think it'll have automation, as well. – Neeku Jul 10 '14 at 15:07
  • Though I cannot answer the question: it might be helpful to include which video formats must be supported on the "input end" (the "output side" is pretty clear if you're talking about standard Video DVDs). – Izzy Jul 10 '14 at 15:07
  • @Neeku I did a quick look at the manual on line. It says the product to use is "Nero Video" but there's no online manual for that. – Johnny Mopp Jul 10 '14 at 18:05
  • @Izzy I don't have those specs yet. I believe most of the video comes from KiPro Recorders. – Johnny Mopp Jul 10 '14 at 18:06
  • First find a CLI burner and a converter. You need to write a script for that. Powershell, VB.net, Bash, Python, come into mind. Call a exteral CLI burner from these scripts. – Wally Jun 19 '16 at 12:54
