Interface looks very clean, various options, can de-select streams, allows for custom compression between 0-100% (or Fit to DVD), decrypts/transcodes on the fly, can also burn the transcoded DVD or write to an image.

... very slow! Progress bar moves 1% every 2 minutes on my XP2700+, on a 7200MB Disc (Family Guy Season 1 Disc 1).

update: progress bar after 10 minutes: 3% complete, 6% current. estimated remaining time is 6 hours !! the quality better be perfect!

ps. this should probably become a sticky.

This has actually been debated about on the DVD95Copy forum. Some say it is ripped off code and others say it is legally purchased code, but it is certainly a modified version of DVD95Copy.

A bit like the software called "MakeDVD", a DVD2One cloned copy, but may be legally obtained code (but may be not too).

Why is it so horribly slow then?

update: it appears the software has a crappy read engine .. i tried my other dvd drive and remaining time is "only" 1 hour now. if that's a dvd95copy clone than of the disc it goes

i'd really like to know though what engine it uses to burn dvd if that is ripped as well.

Interesting, especially regarding this statement on their site:

THIS IS WHAT DCS DOES:

- Transcoding of complete DVD videos (needs approx. 30 minutes, depending on the size of the DVD)
- Movie Only-Copy (copies just the main movie of a DVD video - transcoding needs approx. 10 minutes, depending on the size)

Kinda like dvd2one which licensed their code to another company who renamed it under some other name. So what's the difference? Maybe it doesn't have that hardware id security thing.

well if it's legal and not a stolen ripoff then how is the quality? better worse than DVDshrink or DVD2One. Might have to try this one out!

If this is legal then I'm glad to see it. DVD95Copys hardware reg system was causing a lot of paying customers headaches from what I've seen at its forum.

BTW, I'm trying the demo now on The World Is Not Enough.

Update*
The movie came out pretty good considering I keep all extras and resized them to 25, 30, and 50 %. Its about the quality I would expect from DVD95Copy. It took about the same amount of time(52mins) with other stuff running on my machine.

Well, i have done 2 discs to harddrive, both looked awesome and took about an hour to rip, encode and copied to hard drive.

But when i try to open DVD file on hard drive, run them through PowerDVD i get the following message :

DVD Error

Error Code : 89030000
Unknown file format

Never had this before with other movies.

Any thoughts ??

Are the files in a VIDEO_TS folder? Not that it should matter, but you can try that.

I installed it and tried it.
I ripped the featurette from crouching tiger and it created a VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folder with the vob and ifo files in it.
Ran it through Power DVD and it said no disc in drive g!!

No ideas as to why it would do this.

I have now uninstalled it as I am v. happy with shrink

yep definitely it's dvd95copy. That's one of the reasons amongst others I quit using it. You wanna get rid of it? Uninstall PowerDVD and when installing it again don't put any updates in for PowerDVD. I've never had that error in any other program I've used.

Having said the above dvd95copy is used by quite a few who are quite happy with it and get excellent results.

Well it seems that error only comes up if you rip straight from the disk. It doesnt do that if you run from a dvd already decrypted to the HD.

I can just confirm that DCS is using a LEGAL part of dvd95copy. But DCS is about a lot more than just transcoding, It is a full featured bit of kit, it rips transcodes and burns, Its not bad at all, and easy enough to use.
The main thing i wanted to clear up though was that it is legal

Yeah, it was confirmed awhile back to be Legal. Maybe no one in this forum posted the info so thanks. On that note, doesnt DCS get a sticky topic?

Acording to Oxdeadbeef:
"I relied on the measurements of german magazine c't here. The comparison of DVD95Copy (1.5 Beta1) and DVDXcopy Xpress (2.0.0) showed exactly (!) the same bitrate and JND values for the 40 seconds test sequence they compared. They concluded that 321 Studios (Xcopy Xpress) probably bought a licence from DigiMedic (95Copy)."

DVD95Copy really gets around.

I can say with 100 % certainty that Digi did NOT sell or give any code to 321 studios, and he said as far as he knows, they havnt used any of his code, so i guess its a fluke that the results came out that way.
