ShrinkTo5 v2.0.1

I do not know why so much bad comments. Seems that most comments are from competitors ;)
However, I test the software and Iam surprised. Sure it cannot come to the quality of DVDShrink, but it copies all DVDs that DVDShrink, AnyDVD, DVDFab and others cannot copy. In my eyes the best tool and special, it is not closed. Still in development, so much potential.
