    After a little research, this was possibly the best answer:

    This happens when the drive you're saving the output to is too slow or slower than the source drive and you have a fast CPU. Shrink (and Recode) does its magic in memory and buffers the results for writing back, if you have a CPU that can process video faster than it can be written to the HDD the buffer will grow until it exhaust all available memory and you get the out of memory error. You can easily see that this is what's happening by hitting pause at every 20% of completion and wait for the HDD light to go out before resuming. The job will finish without any problem.
