Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

Is your problem with decrypting or compressing?

No there are really not any better compression programs, they will give you the same result.

So how far do you have to compress it to make it fit after you have removed the menu's,subtitles,extra's,etc?

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

DvDShrink will work, but if you have to compress it more then 80% you will start to see a degrade in picture quailty on the bigger t.v. screens. That's up to you. Why don't you split the movie onto 2 DvD's?

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

I myself have never double compressed before. Most of the time I will put in on a Dual Layer Media. Single Layer Media is cheap go for it, and see if you can live with the quality.

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

Why don't you use DVD-Rebuilder?

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

In my opinion the only program to use if you want good compression at high levels is DVD-Rebuilder. I got the pro version with CCE Basic and it's been awesome.

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

DVD Rebuilder is what you want, as has been said. Just understand that it takes *FAR* longer than a transcoding engine as it's going to actually reencode the video. The results are night and day, however, and will give you the results you're looking for.

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

If you decide to go with DvD Rebuilder and you have to compress more then 80%, make sure that you do a least 3 passes especially because of DVD Rebuilder's 'segmented' nature (divides the movie into segments, so the allocation of bits is limited). If you don't need high compression, let's say under 80%, you can use 2 passes without any problems.

Re: Better Compression Programs Beside DVD Shrink

I know that DVDShrink can compress Miami Vice with absolutely no problems, I've done it. Might want to check your settings in Shrink.

As for the quality of DVDShrink outputs, one of the best transcoders IMHO, and would have no issues for even 30% compressions. If you'd like to even better your chances for video quality retention with Shrink, check the Deep Analysis and AEC options. The original bitrate of the movie in question also would affect the quality retention as well.
DVDRebuilder is a good companion program to have though, I have it and use it for movies that go over 30% compression. It does take a few hours to encode a 2 hour movie, but it is worth the time.

But as I've said DVDShrink did compress Miami Vice without problems...

2 passes is heaps! Try and look at the quality difference on a 2 pass compression and one that has had 5 for example. I bet you can't find any. You can do more than 80% compression on just 2 passes easy enough. I don't know what platinumsword is on about.

DVD Rebuilder is one of the best programs you could buy. I donated on what people had said about it knowing that it would be my future backup tool. I am so happy with it, one of the best purchases I've ever made.

80% is a rough figure not exact. If he had to do say 50% compression, then I would do 3 passes. Your reading to much into it. It's all relative to how picky you want to be. The bigger the screen your watching it on you will see a difference.
