  • Download DVDShrink and install it on your PC.
  • Insert the movie DVD in the optical drive and launch DVD Shrink
  • In DVDShrink main window, click the Open Disc button .
  • In the dialog box that opens, select the drive where the DVD is and click OK.
  • DVDShrink shall analyze the content of the DVD.

  • Once the analysis is completed, you can choose your compression option
  • Click the button Backup!
  • In the window that opens, select the target folder for the extracted video and click on Accept
  • The copying process shall start

  • Note that the program will generate both the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS files.
