Making a copy of DVD is easy and you can do it yourself with help of DVD Shrink software. Mostly the process of copying DVDs entails three components that are encrypting, copying, and burning.
There are many DVD movies that are encrypted to protect their illegal distribution. Consequently, if you have purchased a movie, it may or may not be legal to decrypt in your area. You may need to check that out before performing doing a decryption. There are several tools available for decrypting software, and the best product to accomplish the results is called DVD Shrink 2012. This program can be found by a quick search on Google at www.official-dvdshrink.org.
DVD Shrink does one more thing besides ripping the data to your hard drive; it, as the name implies, shrinks the data. This is often necessary as the DVDs that you want to copy are dual-layered DVDs and can contain more than 8GB of data. Since the DVD that you will be copying to will in all probability be the standard 4.7GB blank DVD, you will need to shrink the data. The end result of DVD Shrink will be a file in the.ISO format.
So what are the advantages of DVD Shrink?
The major advantage of DVD Shrink is that it enables you to copy a DVD very easily. Copying a DVD cannot be simpler than using DVD Shrink. DVD Shrinks allow the user to select compression level for each video track separately to obtain the desired disc size, which is usually below 4.7GB. The software is capable of producing either an ISO image of the ripped DVD, or a VIDEO_TS folder for additional processing, viewing or burning.
With the help of DVD Shrink, you can reduce the size of the DVD in two ways. Firstly you can remove content from the DVD eg. Remove extra features, and the secondly you can keep the entire original content, but reduce their quality and thus reduce the overall size of the file.
Obviously DVD Shrink Software allows you to “shrink” existing DVD movies by removing content or reducing their quality so that they will all fit onto a single 4.7 GB DVD recordable.
One common problem faced is that most DVD titles are designed to prevent you from making copies. The first preventative measure is encryption. Most DVD titles are encrypted, which prevents you from either copying them to your hard drive, or if you manage to do so, being able to play the resulting files.
The next problem is concerning majority DVD video titles are basically too large to fit, without modification, onto a single recordable DVD-R disk. But DVD Shrink overcomes this problem too for you by modifying or “shrinking” the data from your original DVD.
