From the Author:
SmallDVD is a simple DVD authoring utility for MacOSX that will take ready-encoded MPEG2 files and create a DVD image from them that can be burnt using Disk Utility.

It is an AppleScript front-end for dvdauthor and a variety of other existing command line tools.

I use MPEGStreamClip to edit the MPEG2 files recorded from TV, create the disk image in SmallDVD, then burn it with Disk Utility.

I wrote SmallDVD because I couldn't find anything else that let me create a DVD with several files, and a simple menu with a static background image. You can read about my failed search for a similar app here.

Revision History:

Version 2.4
  • Release Date: Feb 5, 2010
  • This version adds more control over the colours of the DVD menu. You can now:
    • specify the colour of the buttons, labels, and the highlight and select colours used when navigating the DVD
    • choose to use a solid colour as the background instead of an image file
    • choose whether the buttons should have borders (I always thought this was necessary, but turns out they weren’t).
  • I’ve also improved (I hope) the logic about which menu settings get saved in the template.
  • There is known problem when selected dark coloured labels on a dark image background. The button borders show up, but the text doesn’t. I think this is a bug/oddity in iMagine Photo which is used to create the menus. If you use a solid background, or lighter colours, it’s OK.
