Question How to burn a DVD-9 on a DVD-5 media

Hi everyone,

I konw copying or VOB files can be achieved with trancoder, mplayer, vobcopy, cpdvd or dvd::rip. Some of the tools main purpose is not to make DVD backups but they can still be used for that purpose. But what I am looking for is a tool that can make a DVD-Video take up less space that the original which is
nessesary when you want to fit a DVD-9 (Dual layer DVD) on one DVD-5 (Single layer) just like DVD2one on WIndows platform. Does anyone have any suggestion?

i don't think you're going to find a package like that
now. i think you would have to reencode with
something like transcode or mpeg2enc. and since
you're asking about it here, i'm going to guess that
it'll be too difficult.

you might find some stuff on google about where
sombody wrote a script for mpeg2dec and mpeg2enc
that encodes at a lower bitrate, but i get thats about
all you'll find for now.
