Publisher's Description

DVD ReBuilder was built to bridge the gap between the incredibly easy but limited "one-click" solutions and the incredibly complex but high-quality methods of DVD ripping and backup. A major advantage of this program when compared to older methods is that it doesn't require access to an expensive authoring package. It includes its own authoring engine that reconstructs the DVD in a way compatible with its original design.

keep on using dvdsrhink, or worse crap things like clonedvd or nero if you're not able to judge the quality of the couple Dvd rebuilder + CCE

The two guys below me don't know what they are talking about. I get fantastic encodes from this program. The best!

Crappy, ugly encoding.

The output is still not worth the time needed to use this app.

Do what I did guys, donate and get the PRO version. It is SO much better. With the BETA Viewer it is just amazing! Well worth the money!

Learn a bit about compressing DVDs before you embarrass yourself with a newb comment like that.

All encoders aren't free? Maybe you should actually download DVD-RB and have a look. Obviously you didn't because you would have found it supports 3 free encoders. And they aren't bad, FAR from it.

Bottom line: if you know what you're doing and care about quality, you will use this and CCE.

"The best!"

darkpepe and Saxtus - I think you are both wrong:
both are good for their purpose, and you should consider both of 'em!
If encoding percent under DVDShrink it is smaller than a certain value (most will say around 80%) then you should use dvd-rb, else Shrink is doing a great job. For instance if Shrink has a 95% and you prefer to dvd-rb, you might (almost sure) end up with with lower quality than with shrink.
For more info go to doom9 and read it from the pros

Transcoding (doesn't matter how deep the analysis is) can't match the quality of re-encoding. So DVD Shrink can't give you better result from DVD ReBuilder because of the type of processing it does.

DVD Shrink is WAY easier to handle, and it produces a FAR better picture than the ReBuilder. Since shrink offers transcoding with deep analysis and quality enhancements like "Sharp" it surpasses reencoding engines like CCE.
Also speed is quite an argument against reencoders VS. "Compressed Domain Transcoders" as Shrink.

I very much like this package. Can be relatively simple for those not knowing much about video (like me) or powerful enough for those who do.

Actually, one can "resume" using the one-click. For instance, I used the one-click mode and during the rebuild of the encode, I ran out of disk space and it crashed. I just went to 3-button mode and was able to rebuild without having to re-encode (once I freed some space of course).

I'm going to donate now after trying it out for a bit.

You can resume, so long as you don't use the 1-click option. When in 3-step you can resume from the last successful encode.

Anyway I would highly recommend to anyone to donate some $5 or $10. Well worth it for one, and two once he reaches 1.0 he'll start selling it for $29.99, but of course anyone who donates before then will get free updates for life.

I just wish it would auto-resume from where it left off or a little before, after a crash.

Tasty - change the skin.

Just donated to this ap, due to its GREAT feature of being able to produce an anamorphic 16:9 result using a 4:3 source. Very nice for copying your DVD
to use with an HDTV.Can use a plethora of encoders, is very flexible as far as how to handle the content you want on your Rebuilt DVD.
Nice, nice, very nice!
