My script does not split the output file, dvdauthor should take care of
the splitting. If not, IIRC the mplex manpage also says something about
splitting for DVD files, if you want, you can add something like "
($profile eq "dvd" ? "<split option>" : "") " to the
mplex commandline. Maybe I'll do it in a future release.

Actually, I never needed it thus far, I converted several 2h videos to a
1.4G DVD-MPEG with (on my 51cm TV) surprisingly good quality. (mpeg2enc
created much worse quality, thats why I wrote the script).

It took me 2-3 weeks to figure out how to use dvdauthor for making a DVD
my player accepts (I wanted to make one with a menu). For a DVD w/o a
menu, the examples in the dvdauthor manual should be sufficient.
