Ahead announces Nero Recode v2 details Ahead Softwares video backup software is evolving to the second generation. They have now announced the details of the v2, and set the release date to be in a couple of weeks.
Nero Recode is a DVD-to-DVD-R transcoding tool, originally based on the DVDShrink. But the v2 adds a whole lot more functionality. It seems that the deep analyze function from the DVDShrink v3 has been added to improve transcoding quality. It will also support Nero Digital, the MPEG-4 A/V codec for low bit rate Divx-like compression with simplicity.

Interesting usability features have also been included. The press release promises a Watch while you burn-mode while compressing, with full screen video and surround audio. Direct burn-technology should reduce the processing times by performing on-the-fly recording.

Nero Recode and Nero Digital are included in the Nero 6 retail license.

I have read some information on Nero Recode. It says it won't work on copy protected dvds. Is this what they are changing? I know it looks like shrink but if it doesn't decode and cost money, what good is it. Jerry

hi all @ Jerry746 Yes very good point! if nero did use the decode, wouldnt they get slaughtered in a court case! um? it will be interesting to see the outcome to dvd shrink now and nero! *** STAY TUNED FOLKS! *** Thx...

I'm thinking you would use DVD decrypter or smartripper to pull files off disc to the HD sans CSS, macrovision, & region crap and use Recode from there. Does that make sense?


We mustn't lower ourselves to the level of those we loathe, lest we become loathsome ourselves.

hi all, Thats what it would come to if dvd shrink wasnt updated? Thx...


Nothing here to see, move along folks.

Ahead isn't actually charging for Recode. It's included in the Nero 6 license. Naturally they cant provide the anti-protection routines for legal reasons. But you can do it with DVD Decryper, or real time driver solutions such as AnyDVD or DVD43.
