Well, time for me to learn new things
I was playing with bought DVD-Video Van Helsing (Full Screen, NTSC, R1).
The movie is 2:11:31 hours long. The main VOB is 6.1GB.
When using DVD Shrink V3.2 to open the disc, I see 2 titles in the Main Movie section. With Full Disc option it is reported [Titile 1,2][4:23;02 long][6.1GB]. In Re-Author mode I see 2 seperate titles , each [2:11:31] [6.1GB]
It is the same movie, not Full or Wide Screen.
The programmer authoring DVD movie can use what is called “reuse cells” to save disc space. I believe it is like chaining different cells or audio or something like this. I would like to understand more.
Reported by VOBBlanker V22.214.171.124, Title 1 is "Reuse Cells = No, size 6.1GB, and Title 2 is “Reuse Cells = Yes, size 0 byte”. The Commands are different.
The help function has a small example of why Reuse Cells is used, but not how to check what it does specifically.
BTW, DVD Decrypter V126.96.36.199 reports this warning when starting in ile Mode:
W 20:34:56 Possible Structure Protection Found!
W 20:34:56 5 areas have been marked as ‘suspect’.
W 20:34:56 Dummy sectors will be inserted where necessary.
From first views of the presed DVD on standalone player I did not see any special functions to get to Title2, but I want to know
I had no problems backing up Title1 using just DVD Shrink in re-author mode.
My question is this:
How do I find out what is Title2 and when is being used for playback?
