    ok first off i've managed to turn a divx to mpeg-2 and authored it. Everything works perfectly except I can't burn it using Nero or Dvd author because file is larger the 4.7 . Now I tried to shrink the VOB files in video_ts, with dvd shrink, but when i try to open the VIDEO_TS files it gives me an error..saying (cannot decrypt VOBs and unkown error). this is with video_ts my ifo file and VTS_01_0. can anyone help me out? or is their an easier way to compress this w/ a diff program besides dvdshrink? please help.

    You should Have encoded to the right size in the First place because if you try to compress the Folder even Just a Little Bit you will Greatly reduce the Overall Quality..So you are Better off Just going back and re-encodeing the DivX file to Mpeg2/DVD but use a Slightly Lower Bitrate when you encode it, and if you can do not use "Wav" format as the audio format in your DVD Because this will Take up much to much space on the DVD...Use Mpeg1 Layer 2 audio or AC3 if you have the Option.....Cheers

    yup yup, thanks minion. I've decided to just go back and re-encode them. Only junk thing is I had about 3 movies already encoded so now I got some more time to kill. Thanks =)
