How To Make a DVD ISO Image from a VIDEO_TS Folder On OSX

UPDATE:
This actually doesnt work. I’ll update this post for making dvd’s as soon as i figure out the formula

Simple quick how to. Using OSX’s native tools, we can make a wide host of images. Heres a quick one for making a DVD Video disk if you only have the VIDEO_TS Folder.

1) Make sure you have enough space for this, you’ll need at least 5gb to play with

2) Place your VIDEO_TS folder in a sub folder which contains just that folder, and then create an empty AUDIO_TS folder along side it.

3) Open Terminal from the Applications\Utilities from your hard disk

4) Type in

hdiutil makehybrid -udf -udf-volume-name <NAME OF DISK> -o mydvd.iso /path/to/videots/folder

For example,

hdiutil makehybrid -udf -udf-volume-name XMAS_2006 -o xmas2006.iso Desktop/Xmas2006

This will make a xmas2006.iso file in your home folder, with the video files from the Xmas2006 folder on the desktop.

5)Then right click on the iso image file, open with the Disk Utility and burn!

DONE
