DVD authoring software that makes menus automatically (using filenames in menus)?

DVD authoring software that makes menus automatically (using filenames in menus)?

I often grab handfuls of .mpg or .avi movies and burn them to playable DVDs.

"DVD Flick is a free DVD authoring application that I use for this exact requirement. It comes with a bundle of built in menu designs to choose from.

The guide is here on how to author and create a DVD with a menu from scratch.

[Updated]

Also, the DVD Flick forums (check out the sticky post under Help and Support) seems to have some resources on downloading and implementing custom menus. Maybe something there can give you exactly what you want."

"Here is a pre-analyzed Linux solution reference,
Scriptable DVD authoring solution for Linux.

The basic idea is to use the dvdauthor tool from sourceforge
and wrap it up with any of the GUI front-ends.

Collecting the files together is done with a XML file based on an existing template.
Here is a reference page for QDVD, describing this and
one more sample reference at this LinuxQuestions thread.

Some GUI options,

QDVDAuthor is a Linux Qt based solution
DVD Styler is described in another answer here is available on Linux (wxWindows)
Polidori is a GTK based tool

Finally, there is a nice introduction on Creating DVD videos on Linux and Unix
with a list of tools at the end."
