KMediaFactory is an easy to use template-based DVD authoring tool for KDE. The software lets the user quickly create DVD menus for home videos and TV recordings in 3 simple steps: Select Media, Select Template, and Select Output type.
It can import any file supported by ffmpeg, import DV video files with timecodes as subtitles, import JPG and PNG graphics files as slideshows, as well as importing PDF, ODP documents as slideshows.
KMediaFactory automatically splits DV video and a number of other video formats into chapters.
The software has a handy slideshow module.
The actual authoring is done with separate applications e.g. dvdauthor, ffmpeg, mplayer, and others.
KMediaFactory can either run dvdauthor or else conveniently save a dvdauthor XML file for later use.
