Just been giving a Clapton show on 2 dvds but it is small enough to fit on 1 dvd (1hr 50mins).What program (freeware) can i use to edit it on to one dvd.

DVDShrink will allow you to do combine 2 dvds onto 1 disc (as long as there's enough room on the disc)

To merge two movies on the same dvd follow this procedure. Remember: in this way you don't keep any menu, but only movies.

1) Open the first movie with dvd shrink

2) Press "Reauthor" button

3) Select all items from first movie that you want keep and drag to left panel (don't select menus: they will be lost at all in reauthor mode)

4) From "DVD browser" tab select the second movie

5) Select all items you want to keep from the second movie and drag them on left panel under previous selected items (again, no menus)

6) Press "Backup" button

7) Select output format (ISO or HD folder)

8) That's all.

The length of the show is not the determining factor as to whether it will fit on 1 disc or not. Its about the bit rates. I can take a LP VHS with 6 hrs of footage and put that on a single layer DVD. Regardless, don't trade your 1 disc version.

And you won't be able to seed it here. You may also lose quality, as DVDShrink re-encodes.

Not necessarily. As long as the total of both DVDs is under 4.3 GB then no re-encoding will be performed.
