NAME

makevcd - Create and burn an (S)VCD image from an XML description file

 

DESCRIPTION

makevcd takes an XML file (which may be generated by makexml(1)) and creates a cue/bin (S)VCD image. It can also burn (S)VCD discs.

To ensure that this script successfully executes, please run it from a directory with plenty of free space. "Plenty" would be about 1 GB. Running this program may slow down your other applications, due to intense disk activity.

 

USAGE

makevcd [OPTIONS] VCDIMAGER.xml

For example:

makevcd -burn MyDisc.xml

 

OPTIONS

-overwrite (default off -- nothing is overwritten)
Overwrite any existing cue/bin files matching VCDIMAGER.xml. Useful if you modified the xml file and wish to re-image or burn the new (S)VCD.

-burn (default off -- no images are burned)
Burn the (S)VCD described by VCDIMAGER.xml.

-device DEVICE (default /dev/cdrw)
Burn the disc image to DEVICE, the Linux device filesystem name of your CD-recorder. Common examples might be /dev/cdrw, /dev/scd1, and /dev/hdc.

-speed NUM (default 12)
Burn the disc at speed NUM.

-quiet
Limit output to essential messages.

 

EXAMPLES

makevcd -burn -device /dev/cdrw foo.xml
Create the (S)VCD image and burn it to /dev/cdrw. makevcd will automatically call vcdxbuild to make the image. If there is an existing image, it will be burned.

makevcd -overwrite foo.xml
Create the (S)VCD image and exit without burning. If the image already exists, then it is removed before re-imaging.
