I'm just wondering if there is a way of taking a dvd VIDEO_TS folder and compressing it to read as the video on a compilation dvd without having to burn it to disc first.
Up til now I've had an old dvd player i bought cheaply around the turn of the decade playing dvds into a dvd recorder. but that player seems to be on its last legs. so am wondering if there is a way of doing the whole process on the computer. Assuming also that that would make things less time consuming since it wouldn't involve having to play each title back in real time to get it on the compi.
Was thinking Dvd Shrink might do something of the like but it seems to involve having the video on disc and wouldn't allow compiling several together to the same disc.
these compilations mainly contain short music titles. I started because I had several titles under an hour each and thought it saved discs if I wanted to give them to friends.
would something like Super work on a VIDEO_TS folder to convert it to a single avi or whatever file? VIDEO_TS has the film broken up into smaller files.
I then chapter each title and menu the disc together.
it's not full length films.
most compis are around 4hrs, since that was decent quality on the recorder. But with the other player dying in screaming agony (sounds like that, keeps grinding and freezing), not sure if that's a path worth pursuing much longer.
