Hi, here a Mac OS X Snow Leopard user.

I use Avidemux a lot for attaching subtitles to AVI movies. Afterwards, I often burn that new avi file with subtitles to a DVD for watching it in my home DVD player.

In Linux I've automated those tasks by using a shell scripting which invokes ffmpeg and cdrecord in the command line, so I only have to pass the paths to the avi and srt/sub file as parameters.

What is the best way to automate these tasks in Mac OS X? Maybe Automator? Are there terminal equivalents to Linux ffmpeg and cdrecord?
QUOTE Thanks
