What works

Installs, runs, analyzes, compresses DVD files. I ran the program on the same input under Windows 2000 and Wine 1.1.24. I then ran "cmp" on the resulting iso files for a byte by byte check. The iso's were identical to the last bit.

What does not

Preview doesn't work.


What was not tested

Direct burning. Only Nero burning is supported and I always make the iso first anyway, so the burning program can verify the burn.

The test iso I built (and subsequent others) burned nicely under native Linux (Brasero).

Additional Comments

I'd like to rate this Platinum, but I had to install native Quartz.dll. Also had to override app emulation to be "NT 4.0". Would not run as "Windows 2000". Runs GREAT! Actually outperformed real Windows. Time on Windows was 2 hours, 23 minutes. Time on Wine was 1 hour 50 minutes. Better use use of second core on Linux?

HowTo / Notes


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.
