       mk_vmgm — automated creation of main menu of the DVD (VMGM)


       mk_vmgm [options]


       DVDwizard  is  a  wrapper-script  which  incorporates  a  fully  automated  creation  of a
       DVD-structure with chapters and menus from one or  more  mpeg-streams.  This  is  done  by
       several "sub-scripts" and various freely available tools.

       One  of  these  sub-scripts  is  mk_vmgm,  which  create  main  menu of the DVD (VMGM) for
       authoring a DVD with dvdauthor.
