Yes there is, the old fashioned CLI method. Copying can be a pain but once 
thats done it's not to bad

Basically, if you have some .vobs or just a single one created/ripped by some 
other ap you can make your own dvd that plays but it may involve shrinking it 
down to fit on a dvd disk. This is not difficult but involves time to run the 
various steps as processing video is resource intensive. 

I learned how to do it with this 

I use this for very simple dvd's as writing up your own dvd.xml can be a pain 
but if you just want to have a dvd that starts and has a chapter break every, 
say, 5 minutes this is the way to go. "man dvdauthor" provides example 

As with anything Linux I had to learn a bit but in the end I have complete 
control and I have yet to have found any ap that does the same thing 
consistantly time after time. Maybe there are some out there. However, with 
some time in the manpages and an understanding of the commands. You can 
create a script that with commands being commented/uncommented as required 
will do the job every time. That's what I have done.

I also use qdvdauthor sometimes when I want nice menus etc. It will allow you 
to take any suitably formated video and turn it into an .iso ready to burn 
but it is not perfect and you need to have every dependency covered, but if 
you get it running right it lets you do some god stuff. If you have an error 
it can be a pain until you sort out the dependency. It's the best and most 
flexible of anything I've looked at
