This third major revision improves the transcoding quality.
The following should work:
- ripping and transcoding (including css encrypted titles)
- preview while ripping
- creating an ISO image to be burned later
- re-Author mode including drag and drop
- full disc mode - Settings
- set start/end frames with frames preview
- direct burning using DVD Decrypter
- the preview at the bottom of the left pane
All development for this program has officially been halted, this is the last version of DVD Shrink that will be released.

Can rip DVDs to folders (VIDEO_TS). Can rip to EXT3 and NTFS partitions like there's no difference. The Preview while ripping works and looks fine.
What does not
Â* With the upgrade to Jaunty (Ubuntu 9.04), burning to .ISO no longer works - it rips to a bunch of 1Gb files (.I00 .I01 .I02 etc) and an .MDS file, which apparently is what it does when Windows users are trying to create a 4.4Gb ISO on a FAT32 partition! I tried ripping to my NTFS partition but it did the same there, so doubt it has anything to do with DVD Shrink thinking Ubuntu's EXT3 partition is FAT32.
* Can't preview using the little player in the bottom left, as DVD Shrink goes grey immediately and crashes. This wasn't always the case, but has been like that for the last year or two (last couple of versions of Ubuntu and/or Wine). Before that, it would play, but the video quality was horrid (looked like it only had 4 colours to draw from, hehe).
* With every version of Ubuntu I've had issues with DVD Shrink crashing, though it usually does so after ripping a title. In fact, if it doesn't just suddenly disappear (crash) after finishing with a rip, it is useless anyway and needs to be manually shut down and restarted. This is because either it will not see the new disc, ie still be seeing the label of the one that was just ripped, or I can select the new disc, but while it is doing the initial quick scan it crashes.
What was not tested
Nothing that I can readily think of.
Before the upgrade to Ubuntu 9.04 and the newer version of Wine that shipped with it, all would work fine, besides the fact DVD Shrink needed to be restarted for each disc.

You need to have windows version to 'winxp' or 'win2k' to get past an ASPI error. This should be the default in newer Wine releases, however if you've changed the default you can make a special entry for DVDShrink in winecfg.
If you want to burn using DVD Decrypter, please read the corresponding AppDB entry.
