First and foremost, I am a noob. I created my account today for the express purpose of asking this question, having spent quite awhile searching through the archives to see if it was answered previously. I'm also new to the burning of DVDs.
I recently purchased a Pioneer DVR-106D, and am curious exactly how one goes about making a video DVD. Under Nero 6, making a VCD or SVCD is about as easy as it gets; you decode the original file into the required format, "create video CD," and copy the files over. Whee.
I've made a number of VCDs with anime and webcam videos. My questions stem from a pure lack of information; how do you burn a video DVD in the same sense as a VCD? Can you?
I'm a little bogged down by the information I've been able to find regarding this. Everything seems to assume that the individual already has an integral understanding of how DVDs work, which I most definetely do not. For instance, in the Nero howto "Creating DVD-Video DVDs," I am told to "drag and drop your VOB, IFO, PUB files to the ISO1_DVD window."
Huh? What are these files? If they're required (which they obviously are), how are they generated? Can I create them for my own compilations? (Non-rips.)
Anyway, I'm totally lost in this. Thanks for your time, folks.
