Are you an avid movie watcher with a case full of DVDs? Do you want to keep your movies on your computer instead but don’t have enough space? DVDShrink to the rescue!
What is DVDShrink?
DVDShrink is a DVD backup software which, as the name suggests, is capable of compressing your DVD discs into smaller sizes without affecting the video quality. A regular movie DVD can get reduced to around 2.5GB, which means you can now easily store the backup on a thumb drive or on your hard disc without wasting too much space.
But isn’t something like this expensive?
That is the best thing about DVDShrink. It is absolutely free, and it’s so easy to use. The interface is clean and user-friendly, and the organised panels make the screen look absolutely clutter-free.
What if the DVD doesn’t allow for copying?
Most DVDs are programmed to prevent users from making copies. DVDs are layered with encryption programs, such that users can’t copy the contents, and if they do, they can’t successfully play it. But there’s nothing to worry about. Let me introduce you to another amazing feature of DVDShrink. DVDShrink has its own built-in decryption algorithm, which overcomes the encryption on the DVDs so that users can smoothly copy and create backups of their favourite DVDs.
So what does DVDShrink do?
Most DVD video titles are too large to fit, without modification or compression, onto a single disc. DVDShrink does exactly that. It compresses or “shrinks” the data from your DVD and creates a backup on your PC. You also have the option to burn the compressed or the original version to another disc. DVDShrink does all this without damaging the picture quality and provides the best quality HD videos.
Is that all it does?
DVDShrink also allows certain other features like re-authoring your DVD or making a compilation. DVDShrink allows you to select clips from a number of source files to make a compilation, or clips from the same DVD, thus preserving even more space all the while providing highest quality viewing.
DVDShrink is a very handy, and free, application for anyone who spends hours watching movies. Furthermore, since it’s free, all Windows users can use all its functionalities.
