Dual Layer media is still priced at about $8.00 a disk here in the Chicago
In the M$ XP world there at least two apps that claim to compress a Dual Layer
movie down to a size that fits on a single layer disk.
DVD Shrink (Freeware)
Clone DVD (Propriatary)
Both allow the creation of "Archival Back-up Copies" and act 'dumb' is a way
that makes it very tiresome for a user to create multiple copies of the same
DVD. ie. for each copy one must again read in the original; so it may take
1/4 to 1/2 hour per copy, not very nice to mass duplicators.
I have seen many Linux based apps and scripts that have the same goals: the
ability to create legal "Fair Use" archival copies for legitimate owners of
original material. But to date I have yet to see anything in the Linux world
that equals the functionality of the XP apps.
