HOW-TO: Install DVD Shrink with Wine in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy)

Note: There is now an excellent Linux replacement for DVD Shrink called K9Copy (uses KDE libraries). See its wiki for more information.

Warning: As always, check the relevant copyright laws for your country regarding the backup of DVD's.

Installing Wine

You need to install Wine to get this program running. Follow the instructions for "Newer versions of Wine."

Installing DVD support

You need to install libdvdcss2 package from the Mediubuntu Repository and the libdvdread3 package from the Universe Repository to have support for encrypted DVD playback.

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/examples/install-css.sh

See RestrictedFormats for more information on playing encrypted DVDs and other non-free media.

Installing DVD Shrink

Download the DVD Shrink installer from DVD Shrink and run it with wine.

unzip dvdshrink32setup.zip
wine dvdshrink32setup.exe

Follow the installer instructions to install. At the end of the installation uncheck the box that asks to run DVD Shrink now.

Installing DVD Decryptor

Download the DVD Decryptor installer from DVD Decryptor and run it with wine.

wine SetupDVDDecrypter_3.5.4.0.exe

Follow the installer instructions to install. Do not let DVD Decryptor check for updated versions; this is due to the program being discontinued. At the end of the installation uncheck the box that asks to run DVD Decryptor now.

Configure Wine to Work with DVD Shrink & DVD Decryptor

When the installer is finished run the wine configuration tool with the below command. Or go to Applications --> Wine --> Configure Wine.

winecfg

This will start the Wine configuration applet where we will configure Wine to run DVD Shrink & DVD Decryptor properly.

Setting the Windows Version

DVD Shrink

  1. Go to the 'Applications' tab then click on 'Add application'.
  2. Navigate your way into Program Files-->DVD Shrink and find 'DVD Shrink 32.exe'.

  3. Highlight this file and click on the open button.
  4. This will take you back to the 'Applications' tab window. DVD Shrink should now appear in the list in that window.
  5. Highlight DVD Shrink then go down to the Windows Version drop down menu and choose 'Windows XP'.

DVD Decryptor

Now we will add DVD Decryptor but use Windows NT 4.0 instead. This is important or else you will most likely get the "no devices detected" error.

  1. On the 'Applications' tab, click on 'Add application'.
  2. Navigate your way into Program Files-->DVD Decryptor and find 'DVDDecryptor.exe'.

  3. Highlight this file and click on the open button.
  4. This will take you back to the 'Applications' tab window. DVD Decryptor should now appear in the list in that window.
  5. Highlight DVD Decryptor then go down to the Windows Version drop down menu and choose 'Windows NT 4.0'.

Detecting your disk drives

  1. Go to the 'Drives' tab then click on 'Autodetect'.
  2. Click on the 'Apply' button.
  3. Click OK to exit winecfg.

Starting and Using DVD Shrink

To start DVD Shrink type the following command in a terminal:

wine "C:\Program Files\DVD Shrink\DVD Shrink 3.2.exe"

You can also use this line in the 'command' field to make menu entries in the Gnome (Alacarte) or KDE menu editor.

Once DVD Shrink is running, you may enable video preview. To do this, go to "Edit--> Preferences--> Preview" and there make sure "DirectX video renderer" is set to "Built in software renderer".

When you click burn, you may now use the option to burn with DVD Decryptor.
