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.
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).
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?

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.
