I installed it from testing on my lenovo N586 with kernel 3.31. Don't know how to use it.  But loaded ok and seems to work.  I had to reinstall wxpython to get ETM working again.  Don't know if other programs will be affected or not.

Update:  I loaded kernel 3.34 to help with wireless, deleted dvdstyler and downgraded wxWidgets to 2.8.11 as ETM wouldn't otherwise work (without reinstalling wxpython) on reboot.

How do I find it?

In gslapt go to edit ... preferences ... sources
Make sure the testing check box is ticked, update and then search dvdstyler.

Disable testing after installing, if you don't want to introduce other untested items accidentally to your system.

What testing check box are you referring to?

I asked because on mine there is a MINIMUM of 11 marked as "testing".

I just made an interedting discovery - even though DVDStyler shows up in the "Multimedia" menu, Gslapt shows it as being unmarked and when I tried to reinstall it I got the following error message (see attachment):

I believe that's an old error.  Could you run update in gslapt and see if you get the same error?

Well, from what I can see that's not possible.  The only DVDstyler that has ffmpeg 0.10.2 as a dependency is the old one (version 2.1).  The new DVDstyler (version 2.3) does not list ffmpeg 0.10.2 as a dependency and would not ask for it period.

To make things simpler I'll move version 2.3 to extra and remove version 2.1 all together.  That way all you should need to do is update, and testing will not need to be enabled.  (Which I still think is were you are having your problem.)

OK, my fault.  Your testing repository is not enabled so you are not picking up any of the dependencies that are still in testing.
I'll see if I can get them all moved to extra tonight.

I was able to move the needed dependencies from testing over to extra, before I went to work.  You can update and test now.

2.1 was working for me, but I did proceed with the upgrade to dvdstyler 2.3, which also upgraded wxWidgets and wxsvg, and I'm happy to report that it does work on my machine.

CORRECTION: It turnes out that DVDStyler is STILL not quite functioning correctly -I tried to add some text to one of the menus ("The Quick Brown Fox", for example, and got the following result:
