Yes, you can
But make sure you rip in "File" mode. Not in "IFO" mode.
Use DVD Decrypter if possible

When a transcoder Compresses I, P and B frames, does anyone know how it actually does this? Does it actually compress the frame as a JPEG with higher compression or does it do something else internally? If it compresses the image somehow, could a Transcoder use Avisynth somehow to compress Frames (SpacialSmoothing, Merge Chorma and DCTFilter). That would bring the Filesizes down even further!

Trying out DVDShrink. My WINDVD SE doesn't allow viewing folder DVD files without upgrading.

What is a good freebee program for playing DVDShrink produced files prior to burning? Ifoedit is a bit complicated for just preplaying the film.

I'm currently processing a movie from the DVD drive. The speed is excelent Doing "The Green Mile", a 3 hour movie, and recompressing time is ~1 hour 10 minutes.

-kwag
I've been working with "StarWars II", which is 2 hours 20 minutes. I seem to be limited to level 5 compression due to file size. How did you handle "The Green Mile"? It seems compression beyond 1 or 2 is discouraged due to quality issues.

I encoded as movie only, stripping all menus, and left only one audio channel. The result, looks like crap , because it's a very long movie. But then, it also looks like crap with DVD2ONE and IC

How do I burn a DVD from HD files created by DVDShrink? I have latest version of NERO and Swim Fan, which doesn't require compression according to DVDShrink.

I am using DVD Shrink 1.03 and followed the instructions from the Movie Only Guide posted on these forms. I used the movie only Guide and burned the movie on Pioneer A04 with Parrsi's burning software. The movie burned ok and when I installed it in my stand alone DVD player, this is what I got - a graphic that resembales file folder with the following - Menu and the box with type: ROOT (on the left side) and all the movie files names on the right side - VTS_01_1,VTS_01_2, VTS_01_3,VTS_01_5, VTS_01_5 with each file name a RED icon before the file name. You can nevigate through these files with your remote. Also there is a box at the bottom that says Play Mode.

My problem:

1. How do get rid of this from the DVD - I just want the movie to start?

2. When you skip chapters, I loose the Audio and have to go back to the above menu and start all over again to have the audio.

What am I doing wrong? Please HELP

Thanks.

Jeff

Any guidence.

I am totally confused which version of ImgTool to have? I have NERO, but am not sure which version. Which version of NERO should I get? Does ImgTool work with NERO? Any Dummies Guide sitting anywhere?

Thanks.

Jeff

ImgTool works with Nero's API. You just need to install a demo version of Nero, and that will work fine
Just download Nero from www.ahead.de and install it, then download ImgTool version 1.00.4 and install that. Now after you finish encoding your movie with DVD Shrink to any temporary directory, select that directory with ImgTool and burn

Used ImgTool for a DVD Decrypter rip of a 84 minute film. As the film required no compression, everything worked perfectly through DVDShrink into NERO.

I'm looking forward to improvements in DVDShrink that allow effective compression of longer films.

There must be a potential DVDShrink/KWAG linkage in there somewhere.

Thanks.

@All,

Just tried DVDShrink (v1.03) + DVD2one (v1.1.2) on HP_SC.
Results are FANTASTIC!!!!!

DVDShrink: (movie-only files 7.48GB)

1) Removed audio except English.
2) Removed ending credits.
3) Copy files with changes to HD

DVD2one:

1) Source files (source from DVDShrink 6.78GB)
2) Target file size 4.38GB
3) Encode movie

Burn with ImgTool on 1 DVD-R. Picture quality excellent

Hello all:

I just joined today, and as you can perhaps detect, I am a new user of DVD burning tools and or programs.
1) I have properly loaded Amadeus into my har drive, have compressed and was getting ready to burn it, and run into problems. Please note that I am following mrbass guide to the letter, ahowever, when sending the files to the HP 200e, via firewire, I receive the following message: "DVDshrink encountered an error and can not continue, ioctlAgid failed.fatal. Reason unknown". PLease note that the same message has appeared with 3 +RW discs. 2 of them were erased (full mode) and the other one was brand new. The size of the files is 4.08 Giga, after compression.

2) Then I tried burning it w/ Nero, and it appeared to have worked. Except that neither my dvd-rom, nor my dvd players recognized this disc as DEVD. I loaded the dvdshrink compressed files, with no modifications into Nero's UDF/ISO mode. Perhaps I need to do one more step porior to burning the files with Nero.

My setup is: IBM laptop, PIII, 800 MHxz, 512 Ram, a total of 140 G (two drives, using the external drive to load the files from DVD, and the laptop's drive for the compressed files.

Please help me.

Tx
