In Chapter 18.6.6 of the FreeBSD Handbook, you'll find instructions for creating an iso image from a data CD using the program dd. dd works for DVD's as well. You can then burn the iso image to a DVD using growisofs (see: man growisofs). You can find Chapter 18.6.6 at:

Subject: duplicating a dvd video
I asked about this a while back and got some good feedback. The issue is
it isn't happening.
To recap i've got some family-made dvd videos that i've been asked to
duplicate. They are quite lengthy and as i discovered won't fit on to a
single layer dvd, so i got a three-pack, which i've already killed two,
duel-layered dvds. My dvd writer can burn duel-layer dvds and the players
can all play them so that's not an issue.
What i did originally was to run dvdbackup on the original dvd video. I
inserted it and ran:
dvdbackup -i /dev/cd1 -o /path/to/backup/area -M
which created a folder under there called video_ts. A segway i put in a
movie in to the dvd drive, mounted it and checked it out that also has the
video_ts folder so i'm sure that's what has to go on the dvd. I put in one
of the blanks and do:
growisofs -Z /dev/cd1 -dvd-video /path/to/backup/area
which upon mounting the resulting dvd i confirmed that it does have a
video_ts folder on it. My issue is when i try to play them i'm getting disk
read errors. The only thing i can think of is i have to make iso images
first, but i'd like confirmation on this or an idea of what i've missed
before i try this again, i'd really not like to burn another coaster.
