PyBurn - A simple, lightweight CD-burning frontend


PyBurn was the result of my first foray into GUI programming with Python. It's a simple frontend to the standard Linux CD authoring tools, such as cdrecord and dvd+rw-tools. The program can burn ISO images, data, or audio. It can also accept a .m3u or .pls playlist file as input and burn the audio files within, converting to WAV format first if necessary.


PyBurn Source Code


PyBurn was mostly a proof-of-concept, and there are better tools available now. However, the script still does work, and I use it from time to time.


Check out Recorder, which is based on the PyBurn souce code. It is more feature-rich and still in active development.
