DVD-Rebuilder v0.98.2

Win2k / WinXP
DVD Rebuilder is a free tool that allows to shrink a DVD movie into a single DVDR disc, using CCE, CCE Basic, ReJig or QuEnc as an external encoder.

When combined with any version of CCE, the software produces far better video quality than any of the fast one-click tools. However, it is reminded that the software is still in beta phase and can cause problems.

We recommend that everybody reads through our DVD-Rebuilder guide before proceeding. For more help with DVD-Rebuilder, please visit our DVD-Rebuilder forum.

DVD-Rebuilder v0.98.2

Unbelievable. If I had it to do over again, I'd be using Rebuilder v0.98 for all my DVDs - even though it does take 6 hours vs. 1 hour (give or take) for Nero Recode and 2 hours (give or take) for DVD Shrink. I am convinced that the rebuilds, even when shrunk to a DVD-5, are as good as the originals regardless of compression. If I get anything less than 80% compression from Recode or Shrink, I go with Rebuilder. Hey, it's only time--and the computer's doing the work, not me! I would like an option to set the final size, though, since I like to shrink to 4.29 GB just in case I've got bad media near the edges. Rebuilder uses the full DVD-5 size.

After trying at least a dozen other tools i stumbled onto this one and now i use it all the time. Although i know it's not possible, i would swear it improves the quality of movies. I did shell out the extra bucks for the Pro version with CCE - it was worth it.

Why Oh Why did I put off trying this software for so long.
Don't be put off by thinking it is difficult to use, it's not. It is extremely easy to use, and the quality of the backups is outstanding. Using pro version. Takes about 90 Minutes to back up a dual layer DVD such as Simpsons series 5 disk 1 from 6.9GB to 4.3 GB, but again results are great. Although I would always recommend Shrink, I will not be going back to it from now on.
