Converting DVD-9 to DVD-5

    Sorry...I posted this in the wrong forum earlier today.

    I'm trying to convert a DVD-9 to a DVD-5 with the menus intact. I've used IFO Edit to strip the few extras on the DVD-9, but the video file--even with one audio stream--still has too high a bit rate.

    Is there a way to use Cinema Craft Encoder to re-encode the video stream so it fits on a DVD-5?

    I want to remove the high bit rate, insert the new one, and retain the IFO files.

    If CCE can't do what I need, is it possible to use TMPGenc to get it done?

    I agree. Well, the most complete 'trick' is:

    - rip the VOBs with DVD shrink or, better, with DVD Decrypter (updated more often that DVD Shrink and free, as well)
    - convert DVD-9 to DVD-5 with DVD Shrink (you'll create a DVD-5 ISO image)
    - burn that ISO image into a DVD-R with any burning application or with DVD Shrink internal burner
