Re: [PLUG] Looking for dvd shrink software


You can use makemkv, and then handbrake to pull the dvd's from disc and then make them a smaller file. This should work on both Linux and Windows. You would use makemkv which is unlimited use for dvd's but requires payment after a certain time for blu-rays. Then you would take the decrypted file and use handbrake to make it a burnable file.

There are far better tutorials out there then what I typed. What OS are you doing this from?

I was pointed to a piece of software that would reduce the size of a video so it would fit on a dvd without losing resolution. I was told it was dvdshrink. I did a search for it and found a site but it sets off all kinds of alarms on my machine.  Has anyone on the list used such software? I have a video that is about 2 hrs 40 minutes long and I am trying to get it to a dvd without going to a double layer disk. I want it to be playable on most DVD players.
