SmallShrink is a Mac OS X application which extracts the main movie from a DVD, and reauthors it to fit onto a 4.7Gb single layer DVD-R.

It is inspired by (but currently is nowhere near as functional as) the legendary DVD Shrink application for Windows, with a little help from the various Linux DVD9->DVD5 guides around the internet.

The current release provides a simple interface to a number of open source command line tools which do the extract, shrinking and reauthoring.

This release is still very much experimental, and I welcome feedback - what DVDs does it work on, what doesn't work? What would make it more...


Mac OS X 10.6 or later

Cool. I used to use DVD Shrink years ago. Can't wait to try this out.

Wasn't able to get it to work unfortunately. Had to run the latest version of DVD Shrink under Bootcamp. Hopefully it will work when the next version comes out.

It looks like MacUpdate got the version number wrong. It is NOT 1.0 but 0.4

Actually the developer coded the app with "1.0" as the version string in the .plist file. They actually coded it saying it requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and runs on PPC machines as well, however their site shows 10.6+ and Intel-only Macs. It makes me nervous when development looks like this.
