If you don't need to edit movie, you can just use dd to dump the whole DVD
into ("image") file (the only tricky part for me here was: not to forget
to add "bs=2048" on dd command line), then use growisofs to burn that
image onto blank DVD.

When I needed to edit/convert to DVD acceptable format movies, tweak
aspect ratio etc, I used ffmpeg. On rare occasion I used mencoder (which
comes with mplayer).

I hope, this helps.
