I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit. I'm looking for a DVD maker program for Ubuntu like the DVD maker program for Windows. I need to put some videos on DVD (and in DVD format, not just as files) so I can clean up some space on my PC. What can I use to do this?

I like Bombono DVD. It works OK click Here

Here are the installation instructions:

Installation In Ubuntu

Bombono DVD is available in Ubuntu 10.04 «Lucid Lynx» and up. Install it via Ubuntu Software Center. If you need latest version, see below.

To launch Bombono DVD, just open Applications > Sound & Video > Bombono DVD.

Latest Bombono DVD For Ubuntu

You can install Bombono DVD from the repository.

On your Ubuntu computer, open System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager. Then choose from menu Settings > Repositories and click the Third Party Software tab.

Click the Add button. Copy and paste the following line:


Click the Add Source button and close the dialog. Now you are noticed that repositories changed, so click the Reload button. Don't worry if you see a warning about unverified signatures and unauthenticated software; we'll fix that later.

Now you can install Bombono DVD as other software in Synaptic. For example, click the Origin button and choose ppa.launchpad.net/main. Choose bombono-dvd-testing entry and install it. For more information about using Synaptic Package Manager, see SynapticHowto.

This package is being installed into /opt/bombono-dvd-testing folder; hit Alt+F2 and use /opt/bombono-dvd-testing/bin/bombono-dvd command to run the program.

Telling Ubuntu how to authenticate the repository

Bombono Repository has GPG signing key BBAB22E8. Open your terminal and enter:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys BBAB22E8
sudo apt-get update

Now you don't have any warnings about software can't be authenticated. That's all!
