This is not as user friendly as DVDShrink, but I have seen some 9:5 DVD recodes done with this utility (and a few of the freeware external encoders included in the package) and found the quality remarkable - indistinguishable from the original DVD9 source. It also supports a few commercial encoders such as CinemaCraft.
This requires that you have AVI Synth
installed on your computer and I just updated my AVI Synth addon with all the extra plugins that are used by DVD Rebuilder
DVD ReBuilder v0.98.2

Description: Shrink a DVD movie onto single DVDR disc
Op System: Windows 2000, XP & 2003 (x86 only)

DVD ReBuilder (DVD-RB)
Over the course of the past couple of years DVD ripping techniques have changed dramatically. Newer "one click" programs have made backing up a DVD a fairly simple process... but there is a significant trade-off.
The quality that can be attained by even the best of these programs is poor in comparison to original techniques that used Cinemacraft Encoder, HC Encoder, QuEnc, or other top-notch encoders. The reason is simple. When using one of these encoders the picture is rebuilt from scratch and optimized for the resulting bitrate. One-touch transcoders usually drop DCT coefficients or change quantization info in order to lower the bitrate. This can result in pixelation and poor overall picture quality.
But, man, they sure are convenient. That's where DVD ReBuilder (DVD-RB) comes in. This program was built to bridge the gap between the incredibly easy but limited "one-click" solutions and the incredibly complex but high-quality methods of DVD ripping and backup. Another advantage of DVD-RB when compared to older methods is that it doesn't require access to an expensive authoring package. DVD-RB includes its own reauthoring engine that reconstructs the DVD in a way compatible with its original design.
Enjoy (or not)

I like all your addons.....the Net xfer one and that one that went to purgatory until 5 people spring it loose by asking "pretty please" uhm....aww man I hate when i forget the names of files..
On a quiet night you can hear an old Packard Bell Box squall as it finally gives up the ghost, and yet another disgruntled victim of BillG, curses loudly as they crate it up and head back to COMPUSA to violently hurl it at the low-paid, pimply faced, customer service techs, placed there as cannon fodder, forever having to call on managers that never ever come to approve of the return.

Thank you for keeping your addons and making them available to us. I am learning to create my own through your examples.
OOps - the link seems to be dead. I hope that this one hasn't been nuked!

she is in the process of moving... some patience and things will be back to normal and I'm sure she will update when the time is right as well...
