guess you have growisofs installed.

 in that case: do < $man growisofs > and you will find where you are
 looking for

Yes, I installed gowisofs, but never use it to burn MPEG video. Is
following command correct to burn MPEG video files to a DVD RW disk?

growisofs -M /dev/dvd -R -J ~/MPEG/video.mpg

Thank you.

Kind Regards,


I  use:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /some/files

The < growisofs -M etc. > command is used to merge a file into an existing file on a dvd
