Eliminating unwanted parts of a DVD

    Many DVD movies come with two versions, the original widescreen and
    an inferior pan-and-scan. I'd like a simple program that allows
    me to "shrink" the DVD and eliminate the unwanted version, without
    sweating through the annoying details of reauthoring. In DVDshrink,
    for instance, one can replace unwanted segments with a "still image,"
    but even a small image file takes up hundreds of megabytes for some
    reason (I guess it fills in the replaced movie version with repeated
    stills or something).

    In any case, what's the easiest way to do this? Is there a way
    around full reauthoring? What I envision is some program that
    allows you to "encode this" but "don't encode that," and then
    does the appropriate shrinking like DVDshrink does.

    If you don=3Ft want the P&S, don=3Ft play it.

    Or is this yet another specious rationale for ripping off discs you
    don=3Ft want to buy?

    I think this group is acceptable. Unless you think we should only be
    discussing media and drives in here?

    alt.video.dvd is a pretty broad topic.

    Troll Alert!

    You may agree with Arnie getting 6 Million or some outrageous amount for a
    few minutes appearance...Other don't think he's worth it,It's what DVD RW's
    and Recorders were made for.

    Clone DVD 2 will do this,Anything showing in the left column you can preview
    (Picture and sound) anything unticked is'nt ripped,All you need to do is
    tick *Preserve Menus* on the main section.

    Most movies are purposes done like this so it needs a Dual Layer disc and a
    copy will need shrinking reducing quality.
    A lame way of trying to stop copyrighted stuff being duplicated perfectly!

    The discs I buy,I back up removing the growing amount of trailers and shit
    on the disc...I buy the movie not the frickin' trailers ;-)

    Thanks Wizard, and to the other non-losers who gave a legitimate reply.
    It's amazing how many chumps there are roaming about who have nothing
    better to do than moan about netiquette and the morality of backing
    up DVDs. That means you Stan "shite" Brown.

    Speaking of re-authoring, this opens up the possibility we
    could see files appearing on the internet of modified movies,
    done to the re-coders taste. For instance; Take Jar Jar out
    of that Star Wars film.

    The point of alt.video.dvd is discussion of DVDs themselves. The group
    alt.video.dvd.software is for discussion of DVD software, while
    surprisingly discussion of DVD technology is the domain of
    alt.video.dvd.tech . If you're going to crosspost to inappropriate
    newsgroups, expect people from said newsgroups to point it out.

    Could you point out where the charter for a.v.d is located? I wasn't
    aware of the restriction.

    Again, what do you care? There are so few posts to this newsgroup
    to begin with that a few pertaining to dvd software could hardly
    be much of a bother to anybody, except the most uptight,
    stick-in-the-mud drudges who revel in the letter of the law.

    By the way, why aren't you and the other DVD newsgroup police hammering
    in full force on threads like "Alternative DVD encoding & writing
    software," or "Burning DVD files from hardisc to DVD media," "Copying
    orange movies on DVD," and others? You just decide to drop your turds
    in only a few, select party punchbowls? I am honored.

    Personally, I don't care. I'm sorry for trying to be civil and explain the
    situation to you instead of calling you names. In the future I'll just try
    and ignore your posts.
