Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

When trying to burn a video DVD on Brasero, both the "Properties" and "Burn" button are disabled.

I have added the ffmpeg, vcdimager and dvdauthor packages as mentioned in the instructions.

I am using Ubuntu 8.10, and Brasero 0.8.2.

I am sure this has been mentioned elsewhere, but I could not find an existing bug in launchpad.

I have attached a screenshot.

I confirm this bug. It is reproducible with Brasero 0.9.1.

This bug is a duplicate of #358099

I apologise for the lateness of my reply.

I have installed Brasero 0.91 from backports, and the error remains the same, but on the "Disc Burning Setup" an error message states:

Please, replace the disc with a supported CD or DVD.
It is not possible to write with the current set of plugins.

I am using a TDK DVD-R, and the error remains if I uncheck all of the plugins or even select to burn to an image.

I can also confirm this bug in Jaunty (Brasero 2.26.1 ?). I get the same error message as mentioned for 0.91.

I was able to copy a commercial DVD with Brasero to an image, then back to DVD with no problems. I haven't yet tried a direct copy.

Could you run brasero from the command line as: brasero --debug --brasero-media-debug &> brasero-debug.txt perform the operation to reproduce the bug and attach the resulting file to the report?. Thanks in advance

Pedro, I'm experiencing the same problems as the OP. Here's the debug file from when I try to create a Video DVD in Brasero. (I changed the name of the movie file to movie.avi, simply for privacy :) )
