What program can properly convert an FLV file into the files above for
burning a DVD which will play on the average DVD player?
A DVD-Video disc needs a proper file/directory structure with navigation
information packets in the video files, various cross-reference tables in
the IFO files and so on.
There are generally two separate problems here:
1) Convert some other video format into the necessary MPEG-2 format required
2) Author the MPEG-2 files generated in step 1 into the proper DVD-Video
structure, ready for burning to a disc.
For step 1 these days I generally use FFmpeg <http://ffmpeg.org/>. It is the
ultimate multimedia conversion engine: any format it can’t deal with
probably isn’t worth using :). In this case, it can handle conversions
between FLV and MPEG-2 for DVD-Video just fine.
For step 2, there is just one Free Software (that’s Free as in Libre, not
free as in gratis) authoring engine available, and that’s DVDAuthor
<http://dvdauthor.sourceforge.net/>. If you don’t like messing about at the
command line and writing XML files, there are lots of GUI frontends that
build on top of it.
