yeah, i am good as far as playback hardware compatibility, hrm, gonna try that then, thanks
i do have another question if you dont mind going slightly off topic
in dvd shrink, in settings, under the preview tab, i can choose sys default, vmr-9, vmr-7, overlay mixer and built in software renderer
i am wondering if i am not getting the full use of my video card, a 6600GT, perhaps it would go faster if i used something other than the "system default renderer"?
reason i ask is about 2 out of 5 times during the encoding process, dvd shrink comes up with an error, something about parameters, and it makes me have to totally start over, rather annoying when encoding takes 10-15 minutes
