Hi, I'm having trouble playing back DVDs I've compressed with DVD Shrink. It just keeps skipping randomly (usually at the climax of the movie, so fustrating) but will eventually recover. The thing is some of these movies used to play fine and now they are alomst unwatchable. I currently have a cake box of Maxwell DVD+Rs that I won't be getting again. Will DL discs and no compression resolve this problem? Or I've also heard that -R discs tend to work better with common DVD players, mine is a Philips. I'm defraging the HD and will be burning at a slow rate but could it also be the player? And kind of off topic, are up-converting DVD players worth it?
