I am trying to find an alternative to DVD Shrink. Running it in WINE just doesn't seem to work. As far as XDVD Shrink goes.. It is lacking the very reason I use DVD Shrink in the first place (get to that in a sec) As some of you may already know I use my stand alone recorder quite alot on my tv set and sometimes I just want to cut an hour or two from a 4-5 hour recording. In DVD Shrink I can click re-author and set the perimeters (the start and end point of the new recording) anywhere I like.. I can skip past three four hours if needed and make that my start point for the new recording.. just cutting out the part that I need. Now I know theres a fix for this.. get a stand alone recorder w/ scheduling capability.. but I would still be scratching my head on a good video cut/edit tool etc. I hope all that made sense to someone else besides me.. anyways.. any help is always appreciated, thank you.
