    What is the difference between the free dvdshrink and the $$$dvd2one?

    Quality?
    Time?
    What?

    havent tried either one but isn't this a no brainer.

    DVD2One produces significantly better quality when compression is required.

    I use DVDShrink almost exclusively for episodics, since splitting them onto separate disks with little or no compression is so easy.

    DVDShrink also allows splitting of movies without compression, every bit as fast DVDXCopy and without all the nag screens.

    DVDShrink combines decrypting, reauthoring (splitting/deleting) and transcoding (compression). It does not remove macrovision encryption. It does not do transcoding very well. It is the single best way for mere mortals to accomplish reauthoring, short of combining disparate titles onto one disk.

    DVD2One does one thing and it does it very well: transcoding.

    I have encountered sound anomalies with DVD2One's full disk copy mode - often sets DTS as the default sound (i.e., no sound when played on most systems until you invoke the player's audio menu and switch) and often sets english subtitles as default (again, you have to invoke your player's subtitle menu to turn them off). For these reasons, I have all but stopped using DVD2One's full disk copy mode.

    Hi all :)

    Traffic, PAL, R2, movie-only.

    DVD2One v1.1.3 vs DVD Shrink v2.2 (30%, no cropping. Better quality, 25%, was achievable with end-credits cropped).

    The difference between the two backups is not as pronounced during normal viewing but is still very much noticeable. ;)

    Who wants to play the game? :D

    Mr. Shrink is working very hard to squash v2.2 remaining bugs; v2.3beta is already available for testing.

    P.S: DVD Shrink is about 30% slower than DVD2One.

    Slower, but better quality and gets my vote!

    DVD Shrink 2.2 has impressed me...it has dealt with 1 or 2 fussy discs that other software couldn't cope with
    I like to have both !: )-
