Need best bd shrinking info to make 50gb fit on 25gb

i have tried tsmuxer and it seems to work but most of the time it dose’nt shrink bd small enough i tried be-rebuilder but it stops within the frist pass i’ve seen other stuff like hand break and megui but i can’t seem to find a step by step for it. Recently i tried to back up a bd that didn’t have the normal ooo1mt the dragon emperor so i couldn’t even figure out which of the files to even try to change to get a smaller stream the bd-rebuilder did have a step by step that looked good even thought it said it might take 36 hrs to do but it had an option to do the whole disc which i thought would be great but in the whloe as well as the movie only it didn’t run to far here it the log and work sheet i hope it showed up because it asked for a http and i dont know what to doplease write back for any info and any help you might have

At the moment BD-Rebuilder is the best application for reducing the size of Blu Ray movies. It is still in beta form, but works very well for me and many others. You have to decrypt and rip the movie to the hard drive first with AnyDVD HD of course, before using BD-Rebuilder.

Encoding HD video is extremely intensive work for your home computer and takes quite a lot of time and hard drive space.

With pure text you can also just copy and paste into the post.

There is a guide for using BD-Rebuilder in .pdf form. You can find the link to the guide in this thread at videohelp.com: http://forum.videohelp.com/topic368581.html

thanks for the help take a look at these from two diff tries-----------------------

I’m sorry, but the logs aren’t telling me much. Just that the encoder is shutting down.

You’re certain that you have AviSynth, the latest ffdshow and the Matroska splitter installed correctly? You have to enable mpeg2 decoding in ffdshow when you install it.

There are links to all the necessary helper programs in the BD-Rebuilder bug report thread at doom9: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=143716

thanks will read them i was thinking do i have to install them in the bd-rebuilder tool folder or just as i normally would any other program hey i checked it out and you are right i didn’t see it before about the make sure mpg2 was enabled now my ffd did nat have the word enable but two other terms not sure which one to use and since i am changing that is there anything else i should to make everything run smother since you have been working with this you might know something else i overlooked and one more thing the one guide i read said make an image file and the one you said read didn’t say so which is better

Install the other programs normally.

I don’t think it matters if you rip the blu ray as files or as an ISO. When I’ve ripped as an ISO, I mount the image in Slysoft’s free virtual drive, called VirtualClone Drive.
