    CloneDVD2, Nero Recode, and the venerable DVDShrink3.2 etc etc. All include "transcoders" to allow the user to shrink a DVD (at least the main movie" down to the size to fit on a DVD-5 (about 3.35 gig)

    I know the more you have to compress, the more the quality will drop, so it's best to eliminate unwanted streams from the movie too - but who's compessor does the best job regarding QUALITY?

    Personally, I've been using Shrink for a LONG time and I only let it compress with both quality boxes checked, and the final setting to "extra sharp".
    It takes the longest possible time for it to shrink one this way... but I like the quality of the redux very much.

    So... anyone who's used all three???? Any other shrinkers??

    I use dvd dhrink after I rip to the HDD using clonedvd2 DVD9 format, or I do as mentioned prior then us dvd rebuilder pro. sometimes as well. I admit it is slow but quality is almost identical using dvdrb too.

    I have used Shrink for well over 1000 burns. I have tried others but Shrink works the best.
