Default DVD shrink "like" software for Blue-Ray?

Anyone know of a software program out there that will work the same for Blue-ray? I already have the Blue-ray version of AnyDVD, I just now need to shrink them or do I even need to since a Blue-Ray disc holds up to 50gigs?

I can't click on that link (damned work firewall*!*!*!), but I assume it is a link on how to create an MKV file from Blu-ray.
The OP doesn't seem to want to re-encode the Blu-ray (making it an MKV file and therefore unplayable on Blu-ray players) but rather wants to do a 1:1 copy of the original disk if possible, leaving it compatible.
I believe he will find that commercial Blu-ray disks will fit within the 50GB of available space on the blank media he is apparently using, without having to 'shrink' the movie (like DVDShrink would do to DVDs).

I use a program called DVDfab

Fastest DVD Copy Software | Best DVD Decrypter from DVDFab

I have the platinum version which also burns the disk, but the free version will remove all copy protection and shrink the files to fit a DVD5 while it copies the files to your hard drive - then you'll have to burn the dvd with nero or something

I don't understand the purpose of getting a bluray, ripping it to shrink it down to DVD Standard Definition, when you can get the SD DVD of the same movie ???? Also bluray and DVD use two different technologies for authoring and commercial menus use the new type of dynamic menus and JS so unlike DVD Shrink, you will lose menu and feature functionality when going to DVD.

this is a screenshot of the page of the DVD FAB link that I posted above:



notice where it says,
"DVDFab HD Decrypter 5.2.2.2 (December 24, 2008)
DVDFab HD Decrypter is a simple version of DVD Fab Platinum. It copies entire DVD movie to hard disk, and removes all the protections (CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS) while copying. It also comes with full HD-DVD and Blu-ray support (Removes AACS)."

If you read the last sentance of the description it states in plain english that this program DOES support Blu-ray, Cranky, so I'm not sure why you PM me saying it doesn't. :rtfm:

However, I agree with Darkstar in that I find it strange that you even want to do this.

No need to be snide Derek, the link in your PM did not direct itself to that page you just posted. I looked through the features(from the link), and it did not show Blu-Ray support. But I now thank you for clarifying. As to Darkstar's post, I did not indicate that I wanted it shrunk down to DVD size, and format. I was looking for a program that did the same thing as DVD Shrink for Blu-Ray but I wasn't sure if I even had to since a Blu-ray disc hold up to 50gigs. If you read the title of my thread it states "DVD Shrink "like" program" not a program that converts, and or shrinks down to DVD size, format. I hope this clears up all misconceptions, misunderstanding, and the like.

Ohhh ok I see what you mean now - You want to shrink those discs and view them on your PC. Still - BD media is quite expensive IMO and you are taking a huge chunk when recompressing - might look decent on a CRT, but on big screen LCDs, not obvious.

What I'm curious to know is if DVDFAB retains the FULL menu structures like DVD Shrink.......

Close but not quite. When you use DVD Decrypter/Any DVD to decrypt a movie it converts it to file size that is larger than a DVD can hold. That is why you have to use DVD Shrink to convert it back down to a size that can be burned to DVD disc. I want to know if that happens with Blu-Ray as well(converted to a file size too large for a Blu-ray disc), hence the need to convert it back down to a managable size.
