This is my first howto, so it hope it works out for everyone. I don't know if anyone has posted this before, but here it goes:

First:

Code:
emerge wine


copy /usr/share/wine/config to your home wine directory

Code:
cp /usr/share/wine/config yourhomedir/.wine/


add this to the config file just above # [/wineconf]:

Code:
[AppDefaults\\DVD Shrink 3.2.exe\\Version]
“Windows” = “winxp”


save, exit

Then download dvdshrink from dvdshrink.org

unzip dvdshrink32setup.zip:

Code:
unzip dvdshrink32setup.zip


as the user you plan to use dvdshrink with:

Code:
wine dvdshrink32setup.exe


then configure your dvd drive with winecfg:

Code:
winecfg


It will tell you that it is not yet work, but it will for the purpose of this howto. Go to the 'drives' tab, then click 'add'. It will add a D: drive. Highlight the 'D:' drive, then change 'path' to your mounted dvd directory (i.e. /mnt/cdrom). Change 'type' to "CD-ROM". Hit OK and exit.

then travel to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/DVD Shrink/

type

Code:
wine DVD Shrink 3.2.exe


You should now be able to open the DVD without the 'ASPI error'

Thanks man!

Your howto was the first hit on 'wine aspi' search. I hate wine configuration :( However, with your article, I got dvdshrink working in a minute! 8)

To make this work you need a working wine configuration first. This being the first time I ever used wine I emerged winesetuptk and let it figure out the needed configuration by itself. I then added the AppDefaults section as described by ericxx2005 and ran the DVD Shrink installation. The winecfg step wasn't neccessary, winesetuptk did all that.

DVD Shrink now runs fine it seems.

Thanks for the HOWTO!

I have been trying to get wine to shrink to detect drives without aspi errors for ages, great guide mate.

you can't browse for a VIDEO_TS in dvdshrink...however if you insist ripping the dvd to VIDEO_TS dir then start up dvdshrink like so
wine .wine/fake_windows/Program\ Files/ DVDShrink/DVDShrink.exe "D:\VIDEO_TS" or something like that. Also you can rip directly from DVD with dvdshrink (not recommended because when it 'deep analyzes' it doesn't use DMA. What I do is rip to .iso in dvddecrypter and in dvdshrink 'open disc image'.

Great Guide!

I had problems Ripping a CSS encrypted DVD, however. I got something like "Failed to read file D:\ - Not ready", although the disc was mounted.

I solved this with these easy steps:

    mplayer dvd://1
    mount /mnt/cdrom/
    Start DVD Shrink


So it seems like mplayer does something with the CSS that makes it work.

I don't know too much about how it works, just how to get it to work. Any problems, (i.e. ralle's, maschievano's, and mrbass', I'm not sure. Maybe some searching will help. I'm going to look up some stuff throughout this week, and hopefully, I will be able to update my howto, and include everyones questions and answers. I think dvdshrink is a wonderful program, and should be fully functional in Linux for people that need it working. However, some commercial programs, (I forget which ones) garantee this program to work after purchase. I will also include a link to this so people that need this program to work for business purposes will be able to use dvdshrink and have tech support.

Why ?

Any application-specific how-to should be added to Wine's application database: http://appdb.winehq.org

These informations were available a long time ago from the DVD Shrink AppDB entry here:

Excellent. As it turns out I had a braindead setup from a previous install under a previous distro, and a clean start in that department yielded a working WINE and DVDShrink. I had been ripping via dvdbackup and reading from disk, but this is much better! Thanks for a step in the right direction. :D

I don't have anything to add other then THANKS FOR POSTING THIS!!!

dvdshrink was the only reason I still kept a windows partition. Now I can finally re-format and get rid of windows forever.

Thanks,
Ajay

It seems that something with the newer versions of wine (the versions that stopped using the config file and switched to the registry) has made it not install. While installing and picking out a folder to install, it says "folder not valid". Anyone else confirm this? I haven't found a workaround yet.

I've got DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter running with wine-0.9.
Everything is just fine. It finds the DVD Disk even unmounted, make Analysis with preview.
But DVD Shrink is crashing after I push Re-author button. I get a freezed DVD Shrink screen.

Any Help?

I found a way to do what I wanted.
Don't push open dvd. Push Re-author first, then choose the drive where the DVD disk is.
Now I can choose main movie only and select audio streams and subtitles.

I have a slight problem. When I try to run dvd shrink 3.2, I am unable to compress the information created after running the analysis.

Custom ratio does nothing. The value remains at 100%. Automatic does nothing.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: I fixed it, see bottom
I've got the same problem, except I can move the bar between 97.5 and 100%, but I can go no lower. Anybody have any idea? Wine and DVD Shrink are latest versions.

EDIT: I only have this problem when reading directly from the DVD. When I run the analysis it looks real messed up and only runs at 9 frames per second. Try using k3b or something similar to make an image of the disc. If you analyze the image it will work fine, you can then compress that. Worked fine for me.

This works for me:

Quote:

vobcopy /media/cdrom0 -l -n 1 -O . -t moviename

OR
vobcopy -m (this is what I use)

It will take several minutes for the movie to copy, then do this to make an ISO image of the movie you just ripped:

mkisofs -dvd-video -udf /home/user/dvd/movie > /home/user/dvd/movie.iso

Then start dvdshrink using Wine and go to File >> Open Disc Image and cruise to the just ripped 8 gig + image and open it.

After dvdshrink has analyzed the DVD image, hit the backup button and make sure to tell dvd shrink to save the movie as an iso image. (Actually I used make iso under backup.)

This will take some time.

When dvdshrink is done, exit it. then go back to your Gnome-terminal and go to /home/user/dvd and do this:

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=/home/user/dvd/movie.iso

Eject the disk and you're done.


And this is for personal dvds of course :wink:

i'm using dvdshrink under wine just fine. first i use dvdbackup to extract the files:

dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o /home/user/.wine/drive_c/foo

then, i use dvdshrink to, er, shrink the disk. this is gui based. i'd like to script this if possible, or alternatively run multiple versions of dvdshrink when i need to shrink more than one item at a time.

finally, i use mkisofs to create a burnable iso image.

mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /home/user/foo.iso /home/user/.wine/drive_c/foo/

Anyone know why I get this error trying to run winecfg:

Code:
/usr/local/bin/wine: error while loading shared libraries: libntdll.dll.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


I am confused as to how to fix this. I had a very old version of wine and just recently installed the latest. Any suggestions? I am exciting in getting DVD Shrink to work...

Thanks

I thought, after first reading the howto, of talking 'bout dvdbackup, but it's done.

I also use dvdbackup to rip the DVD to HD, then i use dvdshrink to get the movie in my language and compress it for DVD 4Go burn. That was the solution i used when i was a windows user (dvd decrypter instead of dvdbackup), but i works all fine with this solution. For burning the DVD, i use K3B. :D

I have dvdshrink finally up and running. thanks guys

i have a question however, that i haven't seen a similar problem to. When I open an .iso that i've made, I can't compress the main movie more than 84.2%. The is a problem since that makes the disk larger than allowed for a dvd5. Has anyone seen issues like this and a way to fix them? thanks again
