Try using the -mp2 option for the audio. You can create a 
.dvd-slideshow directory in your home directory with a 
dvd-slideshowrc configuration file in it. I have in mine:


You may want to look at Slideshow Creator. It is a GUI front end for 
DVD-Slideshow. I have used it to create DVD slideshows with music. 
It does not support all the different transitions from one slide to 
another that DVD-Slideshow does, but you can edit the text file it 
create to change the transition type.


   Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
