DVD2oneX2.4.2

15 October 2011

Burn backup copies of DVDs.

Overview

DVD2oneX can make movie-only and full disk copies for personal use on a single DVD-Recordable. Features include:

  • World's fastest video compression engine. Process a movie to fit on a single recordable in a matter of 15 to 30 minutes (depending on the speed of your computer).
  • Makes movies-only copies. Why waste space and image quality on unnecessary intros, menus and language tracks?
  • Makes also full disk copies. For those who want to keep those fancy menus and intros.
  • Written from scratch, it's not based on any old code, libraries or existing opensource projects.
  • Time critical parts written in assembly, for the highest possible speed.
  • Burn the movie with your favorite recording software.

What's new in DVD2oneX

Version 2.4.2:
  • Increased maximum output size (was 4 times DL).
  • Fixed OS X 10.7 Lion crash on edit of disk name.
  • Fixed missing first chapter on titles from discs made with Panasonic DVR (thanks Ron!).
  • Relaxed the video, audio and subtitle attributes comparison for the seamless join to only compare the essential attributes. This should solve some cases in which the seamless join of multiple discs failed.
  • Both letter-boxed and pan&scan representation of a widescreen DVD on a 4:3 TV is now always allowed. These video attributes are also not compared anymore for the seamless join.

Well, this is a gonner as of Catalina. The author answer my inquiry and said there are no plans to update this to 64 bit. Which sucks because I know of no other program that can do what this one does. Yes, other programs can compress all of a video_ts folder into a single, large video file, but that's not what I want. I want the menus, etc. This was literally the only 32 bit program I could not find a replacement for. Anyone know of anything else that does what DVD2One does?

I'm using Dvd2OneX not for slimming down DVDs — you can choose your own size  — but for repairing bad RIPs. I'm running Dvd2One 2.4.1 successfully now on Mavericks 10.9.1. It does take some time. No crashes! What I put in didn't play in VLC. The result works perfectly.

So... any plans on updating this app ever again? Your forum has recent posts and the admin is responding to said recent posts... but the app hasn't been updated in 2 years. This app is showing its obvious age lately... more glaringly with new DVD titles. The only workaround I've found for DVD rips that simply won't work with DVD2oneX is to rip the "main movie" only using Mac DVDRipper Pro... and then opening the main movie folder with DVD2oneX. This allows the app to see the DVD structure of newer DVDs... whereas before it would show the data as 0 bytes or a few hundred kilobytes or some obscure incorrect number. There really isn't any other app like this on the Mac, so if you could at least inform your customers of an impending update, it would be much appreciated. Being vague on your forums isn't helpful for anyone.

I agree with many that are reporting a significantly lessor amount of functionality/reliability/stability as time goes on. It used to be a great app for condensing/compressing Video_TS Folders down to one 4.7 Disc while retaining exceptional quality. Now I cannot even get it to compress two 3.8 GB Video_TS Folders without the app continuously crashing less then midway through the process. It's to bad to because I ALWAYS relied on the app for such task and now it appears I can no longer :(

So first try to have DVD2One convert a DVD and it fails because of "source protected". It was the Lord of the Rings 2 part DVDs which I wanted used this to combine into a single video file. Can't say I'll buy this as such, but I'd advise anyone else to first try it on your own to see if it's worth a steep $50. /

All of the advice is nice, but I want to burn on a single-layer blank DVD that's approx. 4.3 GB in size. One used to be able to do that. Now one can't on many occasions. The fact is, there's no solution to what I want to do. C'est la vie.

I've used MDRP as of late because RipIt can't seem to handle newer protection schemes. However, MDRP isn't that good, either. It give me the option of ripping either a 64GB video_ts folder (literally, 64 GB) or a 6.8 GB iso file. I don't have any kind of dual-layer burner. I need a final video_ts folder that's roughly 4.3 GB in size. DVD2One no longer seems able to provide this for me. I wrote to the developer about this, and I was told to try the new version. But no luck. I wasn't halfway through shrinking, and I was already past 6 GB in size. (I usually get a final product that's about 16 GB in size. Even with the previous version.) So, are we at the end of an era here? Anyone know of any alternatives? Thanks

Something appears to be amiss with this new version (2.4.2). Each time I've tried to burn a disc, I'm greeted with an error that says "There is not enough free space on the inserted media. Available:0 MB Needed:4.14 GB". DVD-R's I'm using burn fine in other programs. (If you upgrade to this new version, hang on to the old one just in case you get the same error!)

I agree with Beamy, it would be nice to have just a few more selections. I like to have main features, extras but I don't necessarily need all the languages or previews. I will give an extra star to DVD2oneX for the rapidity and excellent work it does with compression. I have been using Toast Titanium until I encounter a problem with the movie "Inception" Toast could not compressed it, it kept crashing and someone recommended me DVD2oneX and it works like a charm. A bit on a high price with the lack of option but very effective. It did what it what supposed to do. Not enough time to really make a full review, so I don't know about stability issue or other problem it may encounter. Looking to see a newer version with more option selection. Happy New Year, this was my discovery of late 2010.

I have happily used DVD2OneX for years. But suddenly it's become a bit stupid. For instance, I tried to make a full copy of an unprotected DVD of my son's birth, but DVD2OneX simply could not figure out that first it had to copy the original DVD before burning it to a blank DVD+R because my MacBook has only one optical drive. In the past, DVD2OneX understood that when using any kind of computer with only one optical drive, the first order of business is to COPY the source DVD to a scratch folder on the computer's hard drive, and only then could it be processed for burning onto a DVD. Anyway, since DVD2OneX can't seem to handle a simple DVD copy with only 1 optical drive, I had to quit using that and instead use DVDRemaster, which handled the exact same job quickly and without complaint. I hope DVD2OneX's developers will bring back the ability to make an exact copy of a DVD with only 1 optical drive.

This program is indeed fast and the defaults do exactly what I want to do, making the program dead simple to use. Making a DVD backup consists of selecting the second of three options from the main menu, browsing to my Ripit DVD rip file, and then pressing the green button to select the burn to disk option. Click a button and away you go. The aesthetics of the interface leave something to be desired as others have commented. I have not experimented with the advanced features. It would be cool to find a way to chain this program with Ripit so that I could automate the entire backup process down to two steps; inserting the source DVD, and then inserting the blank 4.7GB DVD for burning.

Seems very fast but I am having two issues. I have a folder of video TS films, and I want the programme to convert them all into their own Vobs, however it seems to want to combine them all. Secondly there does not appear to be a way to remove of source, you can add all the time but the minus button is greyed out. So I have to quit the programme between rips.

Great program. FairMount and DVD2OneX have left off where CloneDVD and AnyDVD did on Windows. I was a little iffy switching completely to Mac for my DVD burning purposes, but the combination of these two programs has been a wonderful switch. This program works perfectly and has never crashed on me and has never produced a bad disc. I always burn on a slower speed. However, this program has a grotesque and displeasing interface that makes me want to vomit all over the screen. I think the developers should make this wonderful piece of software a bit easier on the eyes. However, it's still a great program regardless. =P

First off, this is not a ripping program. It will NOT copy commercial dvds to your hard drive. This app compresses files that you have already ripped to the hard drive so they fit on a single sided DVD (4.4GB). And can burn them to a DVD if you wish. I do have this, and recommend it to anyone backing up their DVD library. It is fast, the quality is great, and it even fixes some of the problems that copyprotection creates.

Oddly enough the people at Handbrake virtually insist that you should: 1. RIP with DVD2oneX 2. Use Handbrake in the command line interface If you don't, you end up wiping a lot of geek spit off your face if you have the effrontery to go to their forums with questions. Personally I never got DVDoneX to work for me and have stuck with my tried and true MacTheRipper/Handbrake workflow.

I haven't any experience with this software, but I have to toss in a comment about Mac the Ripper. I can't think of any reason to jump ship from "the ripper" which does a fabulous job in copying DVD's. For a free piece of definitely MAC s/w, it does a great job. Kudos out to the HandBrake, Senuti, and MactheRipper people for making the iPod and DVD work easy and giving away their fine skill. Speed is a relative term, yet my daughter using an old iMac/G3 gets a ton of work done using MTR. I'm always happy to see a developer come up with an improvement, however when a said developer comes up with a very windows piece of shareware that pales in comparison to Mac-style freeware, I'm not too sure they deserve my money, nor my respect.

Didn't believe the claims about the speed until I used it. It compressed an 8gig movie down to about 4.3gig in roughly half an hour on my eMac G4. That's a lot faster than DVD Shrink on Windows aswell as certain other well known Mac DVD encoders.

Been using this program from version 1.x. Has worked almost flawlessly. But i'm a bit disappointed in the direction it is going. Firstly, the newer 2.x UI is completely hideous. It is the epitome of an ugly Windows program ported to Mac OS X. The "wizard" look is a complete step backward compared to the 1.x interface. The second thing is that this program costs a pretty penny and is becoming obsolete as newer copy protection schemes are being churned out each day by the movie companies. It simply crashes on newer DVDs with no explanation of why, and it has to do with the team not developing the program further to handle these new schemes. I know it is not a DVD ripper, but that is no excuse for DVD2OneX's inability to handle newer titles that have quirky IFO files in them (even after they have been SUCCESSFULLY extracted by other means.) With the developer making good money off each license of this app, it is not too much to ask for to have this functionality added.

May not be the best user interface but it beats Toast hands down in speed and compatability. Try burning a Video_ts folder that contains empty cells with Toast, the said DVD will stall in your DVD player and be unplayable. With DVD2One you can deactivate the empty cells and burn a DVD that will work with your DVD player. I'd rather burn DVD backups that work and with DVD2One you get backup DVD's that work.

I agree with both sides on this one. ¥ When DVD2oneX works properly it does the job easily and exactly as you wished. BUT not since version 2 was released ¥ I stopped wasting my time with any version of it. MTR and Toast 7 do the job just fine now for me. I use MTR for a full backup then use Toast to make it fit a 4.3 DVD or to a DL. It's a cruder option but at least my DVD's play on all DVD's including desktop players! ¥ Since the introduction of DVD2oneX 2.0, I have had the same issue as some of the others here. DVD's that came out bad or completely useless on desktop DVD players! They all worked fine in my Mac or my GF's Compaq but not in any desktop player I tried. I'm assuming it's got something to do with the compression method/engine since it's been drastically changed from the one that worked flawlessly in the older 1.x flavours. I will not rate this normally good application or slam the developer(s), but something needs to be fixed with it's compression engine! DVD's shouldn't keep choking or dying 3/4's of the way or limited to being watched on a computer only. I've had both Panther & Tiger OSX and I've had 2 different DVD drives (SL now DL) since DVDxDV 2.0 was released, all with varying bad results. Finally, this isn't the only application that doesn't allow the user to cancel a burn when an error is encountered and it would be nice if it became a standardized option for all burn software!

Well, the app functions nicely, but unfortunately, they still haven't fixed the interface introduced in DVD2OneX 2.0, and it's still a huge pain in the ass to work with (this coming from a long-time user of DVD2OneX 1.x - so I'm no noob). They aren't listening to any of the feedback, and seem to be content to leave us with this lame interface, all for the sake of having a single code base for Mac and Windows. That's fine with me as long as they make the Windows version behave like the Mac one, and not vice-versa. If they hope to be successful on the Mac, they need to fix the interface ASAP!

I had to post this review after reading the last few no star or 1 star reviews. After downloading DVD2oneX 2.0.3, paying €47 for the app and receiving my serial within seconds, I successfully burned three DVD movies without making a single coaster. It didn't crash and the movies play perfectly. I didn't even read any instructions, so it's all pretty intuitive. There are plenty of options to choose from, but the default settings worked for me. There may be better or cheaper alternatives, I don't know - haven't tried any. But, this one works quite well. MacTheRipper/DVD2oneX/Toast 7 DP G5/10.4.5/3.5Gb RAM

I have been using DVD2oneX for some time now and never had a problem until I upgraded to the latest version. Seems that when the compression takes place something is going wrong, causing the DVD to stop playing in my DVD player. It works fine when playing the movie on my computer, but when using a regular DVD player, the video stops and then shuts down. I am then left looking at the DVD Player default screen. I have since reverted to a previous version and all is well. Wasted a few DVD-Rs though. :-(

100 dollars? I bought the first version of this software, it was $50 (and there seems to be no price break for previous owners of this guy's software). Even then it was pricey, and before Popcorn was released. I would save your money, and get Popcorn. Yes this program was good, but Popcorn and Toast will do MORE than this program for a fraction of the price. Maybe this guy made a mistake when he did the Frank to USD conversion?

It does what it says on the tin, and does it fast and well. The only problem is the astronomically high price. It's hard to believe, but this program costs $20 more than Toast Titanium 7, a complete CD/DVD authoring suite that can also compress and burn decrypted or un-encrypted DVDs. Now that Roxio has integrated Popcorn into Toast, Toast 7 does everything DVD2One does plus so much more that you would be out of your mind if you bought this one-trick pony for a higher price. Toast's compression algorithm produces excellent results; the quality of DVDs compressed with DVD2One is in no way superior. If the developer lowered the price to $25 or less, DVD2One might still have a future as an efficient, low-budget DVD backup tool, but at $100, it simply has no right to exist. I'm really sorry to say that, I'd rather support an independent programmer than a company like Roxio. But the price is too far beyond reality.

Is there an alternative to this that IS based on Open Source projects? I've liked past 1.4x versions of this app, but don't consider being forced into a new non-standard interface justifying a new license. I would have rather seen a new version of this where it was stated it was built in Xcode 2.x and would support not only Altivec on G4/G5 now, but SSE3 when Macs on Intel ship. Is this app using all CPU cores on the high end quad-core G5's?

Friends I know using this app love it. I'd like to switch to this app instead of Popcorn, but since I have a slower G4 I'm thinking of waiting until next year and possibly getting an Intel-based Mac. I'm sure this app would not be happy at all under emulation (no Altivec!) so I'm curious if the developer has decided to offer a native Mac on x86 version. I'm sure this is one of those apps where just telling Xcode to make an Intel build isn't enough. But perhaps that could build most of the app (all of the interface), then the compression code could be copied over from the Windows version??? Has anyone compared the speeds of the current Mac and Windows versions? Even if the new Macs could easily be made to run Windows too, I don't want to use the Windows version. The virus/spyware hassles are just too much to deal with. If an affordable version-switch pricing policy is offered, I could go ahead and buy now. I really don't want to pay full price twice.

You could get PopCorn instead for less money and it includes the burning piece too.

While I'm sure those complaining of technical problems are sincere, I just ran it on 10.4.1 and had no problems at all. A great product...very fast, and the final quality was perfect.

I have been using DVD2one for almost a year now, and about 3 months ago, it became unstable. After reinstalling it several times, the problem still occurs that the app will unexpectedly quit. I have given Toast a shot, and while it works, the quality hasn't been as good as DVD2one in my opinion. I run a IMac G4 w/superdrive, and use Mac the Ripper. Any suggestions, or alternate compression programs.

Are there any apps of this sort that will use both processors in a dual CPU system? Seeing one CPU sat idle while waiting 20 minutes for the thing to chug through a DVD is a bit annoying.

This product has always been more expensive to Mac users - and with the Euro conversion - is really expensive. Buy Popcorn instead.

Just curious... why is it more expensive for the Mac version? I've never seen a different price per platform before.

No... doesn't support double/dual layer... it doesn't do any burning, just compression to fit video onto a single layer. If you want compression and burning in a single app, you need Popcorn. If you want burning only, you need Toast. Both support double layer.

I love this program! With DVD Backup, DVD2oneX and Toast, in about two hours I can have a copy of a commercial DVD that is practically indistinguishable from the original. Excellent quality, and if I choose, I can have all the menus intact! It's great. A tad expensive, though. (Maybe if the US dollar didn't suck so bad...)

Why don't we use this area for what the good people of MacUpdate intended it for: REVIEWING DVD2ONEX!!! It's not your personal soapbox to stand on and argue with others. If you've used the product, we value your opinion. If you've only used Popcorn, go make your comments in the "Popcorn" review section! I have used both. The difference in quality is barely noticeable as is the speed. Stability is not an issue for either. They are both excellent products. Grow up and take your arguements elsewhere!

Great software. Much faster than Popcorn, much easier and more logical. Great update. Well worth my money -- it has never crashed and has never messed up a single frame of video, EVER. I trust this program more than any program on my Mac. Thank you for quality software.

Can't say anything about this program, but do have to put in a good word for Popcorn which has worked for me on 200+ disks WITHOUT FAIL! Haven't burned one coaster, and only had one film (Pirates of the Carib) which couldn't be properly compressed, due to multiple audio tracks. (Popcorn doesn't compress audio). Compression on my 500 mhz G4 typically takes some 70 to 90 minutes for a full disk (w/ all extras, etc.), and the quality is excellent (but not perfect!) As I said, I don't know about DVD2OneX, and it may be great, too. (I'd love to know to see the two programs go head-to-head in a picture image and compression speed contest. I'd certainly be willing to spend more if I could do things faster and better!). I just noted that a good number of "reviewers" had knocked Popcorn, which is a truly great program at a great price that has been needed for a LONG time. Don't know what their agenda really is, but they aren't telling you the truth.

Popcorn is only a joke if you're a cheap ass and aren't willing to throw down the cash for a superior product. I've compared the two and the video compression is pretty identical. The only difference in my opinion is that DVD2oneX is unstable and crashes where as Popcorn is rock solid.

I've used them all, DVD2one is clearly the BEST. Popcorn is a joke along with the rest. If you want the best quality compressions look no further.

Was debating between using Popcorn and DVD2one for compression. Yes, it's easier to use Popcorn because it compresses and burns with one click. But, I found that DVD2one does a better job as far a video quality. I compressed and burned a 8.1GB DVD to 4.1GB DVD and noticed that there was more pixelation with the Popcorn burn rather than the DVD2one (burned with Toast Titanium). The compression quality is much better with DVD2one in comparison. Although I have to make one more step with another app to burn the DVD.....quality is more important to me. Recommend DVD2one if you want better quality video compression.

I use both DVD2oneX and Popcorn. I have a problem I would love help with. I have a DVD (~8gig) I tried to compress with both programs down to 4.1gig. No matter what I do the results is like: The playback appears to almost do a A/B between a clear/not so clear picture, every 3-4 seconds. It only happens after trying to compress this one program. I have tried different media, record speeds, etc. Ideas TIA

Love it cept for it bombing every now and again with 10.3.7, also it created one disc which was over the sectors required for burning, not sure how that happened but was unable to burn the disc. Going to try and rip it again and then recompress it, who knows might work.

Sys Admin - somehow I doubt that you've actually used Popcorn. If you're so happy with DVD2One why would you have bought something else? Plenty of people have said great things about Popcorn. http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/feedback/roxio_popcorn_reports.html

I have been doing research on which program to use DVD2One or Popcorn. After a 50Pack of DVD's, DVD2One is without a doubt the best. Popcorn creates jumpy and choppy video. It maybe more expensive but overall the end result is perfect viewable DVD. I give DVD2One 5 Stars, keep up the good work.

Regarding the last review, your half right, Ive used popcorn and it DOES accept Video_TS files, as far as the copyrighting issue, you can just rip it using 0sex(search here for it) to a dvd image or Video_TS folders and then drop it into popcorn and there you have your backups. I HAVE had some problems though, Such as jerky playback on certain players with certain films. So basically..popcorn works but is not without its flaws that i HOPE will be adressed in the next upgrade. Oh and dvd2onex is a great app, whilst im here.

Popcorn? You got to be kidding. Have any of you actually tried to use this yet? I guess not, because if you had you would already know that it will not allow you to do anything with your "region free" info, provided via Mac The Ripper. Yeah, I fell for the "buy it now for just $29.00" rip off promotion that Roxio (oh that's right Sonic Solutions bought them out) offered for owners of Toast. Unbeknownst to me that this was a complete waste of money, I took them up their offer, only to find out that POPCORN (unlike the full version of Toast, which I had been using already for the final stage of DCD copying) could not and would not accept the VIDEO_ST files. Stating it contained copyrighted material. Now go figure. The full version of Toast will read and burn anything with one click, but POPCORN (from the makers of Toast) won't accept the very files that moments earlier burned fine in Toast. What's up with that?? I suspect that the people on here pushing POPCORN are either employees of Roxio (now Sonic Solutions) or just read about Popcorn and started spreading the word without actually using it. For the latter - won't they be surprised! You think paying for DVD2one pissed you off, wait till you shell out your money for POPCORN, only to be "turned away at the door" when it announces you can not burn the Mac The Ripper material. jw

This seems like a good app, but in the end I chose PopCorn. I did a bunch of research and the people at videohelp.com seem to think that Pop is better. Has most of the same feature as this and has the burning built in. I got a copy at Amazon for $30.

Wowman... sorry, but you are wrong... DVD2OneX and Popcorn are essentially the same in terms of their basic purpose. * Both compress dual-layer DVD to fit on a single-layer * Both offer options to copy the entire disc or only the selected movie, audio and languages DVD2OneX includes some additional obscure features like "join mode" - which allows you to join 2 full DVDs onto a single disc. Popcorn includes burning capabilities, which DVD2OneX does not. You need additional software for that. All in all... Popcorn is a better option for me (and people like me) who want to compress and burn in one step with one application, and don't need a myriad of extraneous features and settings. If DVD2Onex is working out for you then that's great... as they say... if it's ain't broken then don't try and fix it... but for anyone who hasn't purchased DVD2OneX yet... I would recommend giving Popcorn consideration. Compression and burning in a single app for less than the cost of DVD2OneX.

hey. the "anonymous" user are not complety right! Popcorn is just for back-up NON encrypted DVD's. its like Titanium DVD recorder features in one application and don't have DVD2oneX's features like select sound, language or other DVD's "built-in" features... Im an user of DVD2oneX and works great!

This is a great little program. It's too bad that it is a demo, and you have to pay for the full application. With the Demo, you can still use it for what you downloaded it for. But with the full application, you get much more. I'm debating about buying the full app. Use Mac The Ripper to rip the DVD onto your computer and to get rid of the CSS coding. Then use DVD2oneX 1.4.1 to shrink your DVD in order to fit it onto your 4.7GB DVD-r or DVD+r, whichever you might have. My Powerbook is DVD-r, so I suspect all others are as well. After you have shrunk it, use Toast OSX in order to burn your DVD onto a blank DVD. Toast is program that costs money, I don't believe that there are any demo's for it either. There are ways to get around this, ie. Limewire, Poisoned, etc. When you're all done, you should have a proper "back-up" DVD for your collection. Just follow the steps. **Note** make sure that you purchase the right burnable DVD's. Make note if you have a SuperDrive and also what format it is in, either DVD-r, or DVD+r.

It is a SHAME that one can find such software (and even better) on the PC platform for free (check DVDShrink, for instance...) Since everyone uses this software for illegal purposes (and don't say anything different because you'll be lying!), make it free. Don't give me that crap about software development costs and such...
