First of all I want to make some things clear. If I’m posting this in the wrong forum, sorry then. I don’t know the structure of the CD Freaks forum like I used to. Secondly, I’m not trying to spam, but would just like to give some information. Nor would I like to start a discussion about Windows vs Linux.
Ok, here we go. Several times I’ve read questions on this forum regarding the availability of a DVD-9 to DVD-5 program for Linux. Since this topic is of great interest for me, I’ve followed the developments in this region for over a year now. Since a couple of weeks I can finally say I’ve found a real alternative for ‘DVD Shrink’ (though, I must stress, without much less options). This program is called K9Copy and uses the vamps-engine for transcoding. It is the first Linux-program that does exactly what I want it to do: transcode a DVD-9 to DVD-5, with audiotrack(s) and subtitle(s). There also is an option to copy the original menus, but since I do not need this, I have not tested this feature. The program is very intuitive and easy to use imho.
I hope I’ve helped some people with this information. Greetings to all of you.
