Open Source DVD Writing Software?

In the spirit of using free software as much as possible - OK, I’m a cheapskate! can anyone recommend a good free package for writing to DVD discs?

I’ve got Nero7 which came with the drive but it has lots of bells and whistle’s which I don’t need and will no doubt keep encouraging me to upgrade to the latest version.

Any ideas?

Cheers all,


Ubuntu linux, free burning software, comes with a free OS as well. Requires two optical drives though, one to boot it from, one to burn things on.


CDBurnerXP a good free burning software IMHO

Thanks for info guys, lots to choose from it seems.
