    I'm having some trouble copying toy story 3 onto dvd. DVD shrink could not open the dvd so I tried a variety of programs- dvd shrink still couldn't open it with anydvd running nor could it open the ripped files after being decrypted by dvd decrypter or dvd fab (my trial for this has run out so i can't use it to do the whole thing.)

    Is there any way of doing this or are there alternative programs to dvd shrink that do the same sort of job? I have nero to do the actual burning to dvd.

    Also what is the best way of converting torrents which mostly come in .avi form to dvd burnable files- .ifo/ .vob. I find estimating the quality of torrents quite hard too- a rdvd ripped to dvd5 is about 4.7 gb but torrent files are often far smaller- 700mb ish. I remember in the past when I converted these into a burnable format that they increase in size but recently when converting with hamster converter they stay quite small in size- no where near filling up a 4.7gb dvd...

    Toy Story 3 thread.

    The running time of the video multiplied by the bitrate gives the size.
    The maximum bitrate for DVD maxes out around 9 Mb/sec - an authoring program would perhaps use 4.7 Mb/sec.
    Four point seven Mega bits about = .58 Mega Bytes x60 x60 = 2 GB per hour running time.
    So a two hour video in DVD format will use up the space on a standard blank (once the audio is figured in).

    Thanks for your help, I manged to do the troublesome toy story 3 dvd with vobblanker then dvd shrink in the end.

    I'm not sure I quite follow about video size/ bitrate- am I right in thinking that bit rate multiplied by length of movie (60 seconds x 60 minutes) should give the size of the iso files when converted to a burnable format?

    Yes, the total number of bits, when converted to bytes (plus the addition of the space required for the audio) gives the size of the file.
