    Ok, even though i'm an AV tech, i'm not too familiar with alot of the software out there. Lets say a buddy of mine had some DVD's (not sure about the level of protection on them) whats the best way to copy them? get a program to rip them to my computer then burn them to a disc? anyone have any experience with burning dvd's, copywrited or otherwise?

    I have had hit and miss success with a number of programs, but I haven't paid for any of them. So, when the trial period ended, I looked for another. Problem comes in that there a few methods of encryption/protection.

    DVDShrink is the best program i've ever used
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/dvd_shrink.cfm

    It will copy then in MPEG2 format so that you can burn them later or if you have Nero or some other dvd burning software it will use that program to burn the disc directly. It will also rip copy protected dvd's.

    EDIT: it will also automatically compress the dvd so that it will fit onto a single layer dvd disc. Most dvd's are dual layer so they can hold more than the usual 4.7gb.

    sweet, thanks for the responses guys. back in college i tried to rip a season of "arrested development" using some program and it wasnt compressed so a whole season took up like 20 gigs or more. BTW, i need to mention that i need a way to get this program for free, if i were gonna spend money i'd just buy the DVD. i'll try some of the suggestions. thanks again

    I hear that AnyDVD is updated frequently and will crack the protection on any disk out there. Then use Shrink to make it fit on a single layer blank.

    AnyDVD I'm told is free to try for a trail period, I don't know how long though.

    a "friend" of mine runs anydvd in the background and use dvdshrink to rip, remove menus/features, and compress the video. It works for probably 98% of the movies. Occasionally, I get a difficult video and I consult google for a fix.

    I used to use DVDDecryptor to rip then DVDShrink to compress to single layer size, but then DVDDecryptor was bought by Macrovision and deep sixed AFAIK. Seems like DVDShrink sorta faded away too without any new development, but it's been a year or so since I bothered trying to copy a DVD so things may have changed.

    I just download Divx/Xvid .avi files and leave them on my computer now. :D Stream them via my Xbox to watch.

    DVD Fab Platinum 4 is what I use.

    Also, if you have ripped movies to .avi or a format that can't be burned to a dvd, use VSO ConvertXtoDVD.

    what do you mean crappy quality? Are you talking about near DVD quality as being crap or about a guy in the theatre with shadows walking across the screen?

    You should google bit torrent.

    a few definitions:
    CAM - this is where a person and a video camera recorded a movie from the audience
    Telesync - (TS) likely to be a tripod mounted camera with audio from a hearing impaired audio jack
    Screener - a disc sent to critics (or award shows) for them to review, these are then copied and converted to mpg or avi files

    like lsocoee said. bittorrent.

    www.miniova.org
    www.thepiratebay.org

    and many others. Just need to find someone that releases good quality consistently. I usually stick with aXXo on mininova, but since he stopped releases as often (and went dark for a few months) I've tried a few others. I typically look for dvd rip ones. Not the latest, but they've been ripped from a DVD so no movie theater shadows or crappy audio. Or anything else you'd expect from some schmuck sitting in the audience trying to hold a camera steady, or the annoying warnings/ads from a screener video. Some of the TS ones ain't too bad. Almost like it was done by a projection operator using line outs on the projector to a PVR. Unless they somehow sneak a tripod in a theater with no customers! :laugh: I've seen a few without shadows or the "distortion" you see from recording the movie being displayed on the screen.
