    wow I just compressed a 4.4gb DVd , and I shaved off 480MB+ , I've been doing this for a long time, and let me tell you that's a LOT, DVD's can be verry highly compressed as is
    Thankyou 7zip :)

      If you want to compress mpeg better and faster, you should use bcj filter, too.
      Also the bzip2 algorithm as almost the same compression ratio for mpeg as lzma, and it is much faster.

        no, bcj filter is only for executable file.

      Depends on the DVD - something like DVD Shrink ( can seem to reliably get a 9gb "original" disk recompressed down to fit on a 4.3gb DVD-R by transcoding the original into a more efficient format. Such transcoded images are notoriously hard to compress further (just like a WAV file, even with its basic compression turned on, is easier to compress than an MP3 is)

        Hm, doesn't DVD Shrink just allow you to rip chapters or compress the DVD more lossy? What is this more efficient format called?
