dvdshrink 3 main things still left to do:
1) remove layer break
2) remove RCE protection
3) ability to set default audio/sub streams
about that afterdawn guide...I was planning on linking to it but they knock dvdshrink pretty hard (not as hard as I knock 321studios) but nevertheless
quote from that guide:
" It has actually more options than most of its commercial counterparts, but it is slightly slower and more difficult to use than most of its competitors -- but nevertheless, it is totally free. "
more difficult...hmm let's say you can do more stuff like trim credits if you want I think it's just a tad more difficult than express. Not much use in debating this though.
"In addition of DVD Shrink, you obviously need to have at least 11 to 18 gigabytes of free HDD space available".
Actually you could get by with 4.37GB ..I swear I've done it many many many times.
"he results are quite phenomenal as well! DVD2One, DVD95Copy, and DVD Shrink all perform very well indeed, but XPRESS has the edge with integrated ripping, and impressive speed. Price-wise no-one can compete with DVD Shrink, but as many have discovered, DVD Shrink doesn't always work that well. For easy, top-notch quality movie-only DVD backups, DVD X Copy XPRESS is the number one right now. "
gimme a break "DVD Shrink doesn't always work that well." Please show me again the huge # of threads of problems with Xpress. They both have their share of problems.
