It works, just make sure your device mappings are set up correctly and boom! All done!

Tried and tested with 3 different DVDs, one region 1, two region 2. Each of which play in my DVD+/-R(W) (pc) and my DVD player in the lounge.

The best thing is, because this process works with dvd images off the HD, getting DVDShrink to work to the point where it can read the HD to load an image is enough (no need to try and read the ATAPI/IDE devices with it). So if you're having trouble with wine and DVDShrink you can use this as a halfway house while you sort out whatever it is in your system that stops you using the full capability of DVDShrink

Enjoy!

If anyone is still trying to get DVD Shrink to work in wine, I wrote somewhat of a tutorial on here that might help you. If you're having the ASPI error, you definitely want to check it out.

Good luck!

Workaround for dvdshrink on wine

I have similar symptoms with dvdshrink on wine. When I try to open the disk, it gives me the aspi error, and when I try to open a file, it gives me a navigation window with only "Desktop" which I can't expand or navigate in any direction from.

The workaround is to supply the pathname to the files on the command line. That is, something like:

wine dvdshrink.exe z:\\tmp\\my_video

If you do this, and my_video has the (ripped) files from a DVD, it'll work. When you're done re-authoring you can save an ISO image (here the finder works fine!). Then burn the iso.

To create my_video, use "dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd -o /tmp/my_video -M".

A bit klunky, but an all-Linux solution.

You can do it without first ripping the DVD to your hard drive and save some time. Check out the link I posted earlier... essentially all you need to do is change it from emulating win95 or win98 or whatever it's default is to winxp. Try it out, it's so much faster.

Thanks. I discovered the "winxp" hack independently (in other threads here). I just want to add one note: you needn't change all of wine to use xinxp (it screws up other things). To make it application-specific, add this to the bottom of your config file:

[AppDefaults\\DVD Shrink 3.2.exe\\Version]
"Windows" = "winxp"


Still no luck of the finder crashing. When you are saving the ISO, you can enter a pathname, which seems to work. But if you try to browse, bad things happen.

Summary:

- to read from a DVD directly:
- mount the drive first in Linux
- add the lines above to your wine config

- to read from a directory
- supply the directory name (DOS format) on the command-line

- to save to a file
- type the file pathname (DOS format) in the finder

VobBlanker will also run under wine. It's has a kind of complicated interface, but it allows you to "blank" the dvdfeatures of your choice, so that you can get higher quality with dvdshrink, and not lose the menus like you do when you reauthor.

Hi

DVD Shrink with Linux Tools:

1) ripd the DVD (k3b...)

2) transcode -H 10 -a 0 -x vob -i /dir/where/the/vobs/are -V -y mpeg,ac3 -F d -Z 720x576,fast -w 5000 -o /destiination/dir --print_status 20

3) mplex -f 8 -o film.mpg ton.ac3 bild.m2v

4) dvdauthor -o /free/disk/dir -x dvdauthor.xml
with dvdauthor.xml like

<dvdauthor>
<vmgm/>
<titleset>
<titles>
<pgc>
<vob file="film.mpg"/>
</pgc>
</titles>
</titleset>
</dvdauthor>

5) I used k3b to make a DVD Video Project and the burned it (DVD-R).

My old Toshiba DVD can play this DVD without problems; but it took 10h ( any advice to get it faster? On step 2 you can choos the encoder bitrate with -w. This will shrink the DVD...


Cheers

In WINE you have to give the DVD a drive letter. You do this in your wine config file. This by default will be found in your ~.wine directory. When you have done this DVD Shrink should work OK for you. It works OK for me, anyway.

I know this post is rather old .... but. I had the same trouble with the ASPI problem with wine and DVD shrink. I had a real tough time with google to find out how to fix it so I'm posting this here so other's won't have so much trouble. Here's all you have to do.

change the config file
should be in ~/.wine/config
if you can't find your config file that's part of your problem. Copy it from the sample directory - probably located somewhere like "/usr/share/doc/wine-20041201/samples/config"

edit the config file

remove the semicolon from the "Windows" = "win98" line and change win98 to winxp. See below.

[Version]
; Windows version to imitate (win95,win98,winme,nt351,nt40,win2k,winxp,win2k3,win20,win30,win31)
"Windows" = "winxp"
; DOS version to imitate
;"DOS" = "6.22"

That's it. I know it's easy, but really tough to google.

doesn't work for me

Hi everyone,

what a thread!

I followed all the steps of changing the .wine/config file to winxp but I still get the ASPI problem! Mind, I've got win98se (and the only reason I have it is so I can use dvdshrink).

So here goes: Is there a way of getting wine to run dvdshrink without any windows (cos it's just taking up space)?

Thanks in advance...

Ingo

I never was able to correctly read most dvd's with dvdshrink either. I use dvdbackup first and then read the files with dvdshrink. Many people are unable to use the file browser with dvdshrink, but i don't have trouble with that.
This is the command line i use for dvdbackup.
dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o /1

dvd backup

yeah, that looks like the way to go.

However, I am so ignorant that I do not even know how to install dvdbackup! I noticed they have some rpms, but not, apparently, for Suse. So I tried dvdbackup-0.1.1-1.1tex.i586.rpm with the following result:

ingo@dicker:~> dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o /home/ingo
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access
dvdbackup: symbol lookup error: dvdbackup: undefined symbol: UDFFindFile
ingo@dicker:~>

Still tinkering, but would be grateful for pointing out any obvious mistakes I am making.

Hi Guys!!
I have the same problem about dvdshrink, and the tutorial that I linked here yesterday doesn't work..
blabla: just download the dvdbackup's rpm for your linux distribution, and then install it using a packet manager (if you use suse, yast is very easy to use!!!)!!

A.l.o.h.a. Guys!!!

cheers xian,

your reply and my edit obviously got scrambled so here goes again:

I noticed they have some rpms, but not, apparently, for Suse. So I tried dvdbackup-0.1.1-1.1tex.i586.rpm with the following result:

ingo@dicker:~> dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o /home/ingo

dvdbackup: symbol lookup error: dvdbackup: undefined symbol: UDFFindFile
ingo@dicker:~>
