Hmmm... my growisofs doesn't have -dvd-video (only -dvd-compat),
so google("geowisofs -dvd-compat"); and I found:

	The -dvd-video option will be passed down to mkisofs(8)
	and will instruct it to create a DVD-Video file system
	layout. Beside this, the -dvd-video option implies -dvd-compat
	growisofs(1) option.


It seems that -dvd-video has to be given if you've NOT mastered
an ISO file already, read: when you work with the source files.

Not a blank media?

The mkisofs tools seems to require the source files for the ISO
to be created, it cannot create a video DVD ISO file from a video
DVD ISO file.

Missing: Reading the handbook.
Not doing correctly: Command line options.
