Im after a program like DVD SHrink or Mac the ripper....but with a viewing window. With DVD shrink (pc) you can actually see what going on and choose the scene you're after.

Mac the Ripper for the dvd ripping, Popcorn for compressing


I used to use DVD Shrink on my pc, when i still had xp on it, and it was sweeeeet, but yeah, Popcorn to compress to single-layer (if its a dual layer film) and mac the ripper to rip it

Don't forget DVD2OneX. I've used that for ages and it's been great: www.dvd2one.com

Do DVDRemaster & DVD2OneX have a LIVE viewing window though??

I'm waiting for ffmpeg to move to universal binaries. :( (A week or so according to the developer)

will ffmpeg run under rosetta though? and what sort of speed upgrade can we expect when it goes native?

DVD2one 2.0 is well worth the money.

It does not have a live viewing window though.

The results I saw were impressive. The author said in the pre-release state he can compress a full movie in 20 minutes. I'll see if I can find what he said again.

ffmpeg forums (http://forum.videohelp.com/viewtopic.php?t=294844&sid=aee81ae379539c0cbd16111d7f9da116)


Encoding one minute DVD (NTSC) :

ffmpeg divx 640x272
Rosetta: 2' (14.4 fps)
Universal: 29 sec (60 fps)

ffmpeg xvid 640x272
Rosetta: 3'27" (8.3 fps)
Universal: 37 sec (47 fps)

ffmpeg DVD 720x480
Rosetta: 1'34" (18.4 fps)
Universal: 18 sec (96 fps)


Compiled mencoder for Intel. The 3-figure barrier has been broken:

100fps for DivX mencoder (a movie can be encoded to DivX in about 20 minutes).

Still working at some optimizations and a problem with ac3 decoding. I hope to release within a week or so.

I have looked at other forums about 3rd-party DVD/CD copying software, and found 2 Roxio programs mentioned. One is Toast, and the other is Popcorn. I also looked at reviews for both, and CNET mentions that Popcorn only burns DVD-R from disks and cannot burn image files from hard drives. Is this right?

I haven't found anything for Mac that comes close to DVDShrink's functionality. I can get close with MacTheRipper, but it's not the same, especially without the viewing window. Wonder how it'd run under Parallels ;)

dvd shrink under paraells is great -you even get to save the iso file back to yor mac directories. Dvd shrink is not very machine intensive so it runs well

I'm sure pretty sure that toast Titanium you can view the film and select parts
