Hello!

Did someone manage to install QDVDAuthor 2.3? Is there a ebuild or a portage overlay I can use? I did like this application very much but it got removed from the portage and never returned. It used to depend upon quite outdated libraries of Qt but as I understood it got ported to a more recent version. The development has continued and I dare to say that this application is one of the most feature rich DVD Authoring software for linux. I have tried many other alternatives but nothing comes close to QDVDAuthor.

Any help to get this application running under Gentoo would be welcome.

I hoped that the porting would have had progressed to a point where it is independent from Qt3 libraries. What a shame, it is a very good app. Meanwhile I will keep using DVDStyler. It is so far the closest in features to QDVDAuthor.

(Thread necromancy, but I like the program too, and thought I would respond!)

I have some good news, and bad news (and maybe more good news.)
Good news:
The author (not me) has been working on a port, and I have been playing around with it. There are many parts still needing bugfixes and things but it does work for simple DVD authoring with Qt4. You get the latest code for qtdvd (the Qt4.x version) from the sourceforge git repo here:
git://qdvdauthor.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/qdvdauthor/qtdvd
The authors current blog, which mentions Qt4.x progress from time to time is here:
http://qtdvd.com/support/
With a few modifications, this has been working for me (using +qt3support on qt-core-4.7.4-r1, amd64 system).

Bad news:
The recent ffmpeg broke version 66. I updated to version 68 (most recent), and although that seems to build the ffmpeg bits, its breaks elsewhere.

Maybe good news:
I made a few changes without understanding what I was doing, and it now builds. Loads too, but I haven't had time to try and author a DVD.

Below is the local diff of my changes. The stuff in slideshow.cpp are my newest changes.
I disclaim ALL responsibility, as I don't really know the code to ensure I'm not breaking something else.
