dvd shrink under wine


Hi
I have installed dvdshrink and run it under wine.
I set up wine with wine tools and dvd shrink runs fine.

When I burn the end product with k3b, it works fine on most dvd players I have tried it on.

The problem is the disk wont run on my good pioneer dvd player (only on cheep shit one).

The same download of dvdshrink installed under windows xp and used on the same movie and burned with nero works fine without a problem on all my players...

What would be different about them?

It's not even close as far as features go. but if it works for you, go for it.

As far as your original problem goes, I would think this is more likely a burning or media problem than a dvddshrink problem. I have never heard of dvdshrink under wine causing a compatibility problem. Try backing up a disc with shrink under wine, then burn the image with nero in windows (on the exact same media ID with the same speed). If that works, you know the problem was somewhere in your burning process or with your media, not with dvdshrink.

I tried burning it with a different brand blank and it worked fine....
Must be the disks causing an issue under linux because the worked under windows....

Thanks for the replys.
