Will 100% re-encode?

    If I'm shrinking a DVD and have removed enough stuff so the video is now at 100% will DVDShrink re-code the video or just copy/remux the original mpeg stream?



    thx

    Why do you need to know? Ripping a disc always involves encoding which is also necessary to remove the protection. At 100% none of the files will be compressed.

    I'm not talking about the ripping process. presume you have VOBs ripped and de-cssed on the harddisk.

    Once a file has been 'ripped' DVDSkrink can re-encode it by rendering each frame and re-encoding it back to an mpeg stream. This stream is then muxxed with audio etc and repacked into VOBs.

    My question is : If the compression setting says 100% will DVDShrink render and re-encode, or will it just mux the original mpeg and whatever audio streams are required?

    A clue is given in the 'analysis' option which is unavailable at 100% or less because no compression and hence no re-encoding is necessary.
