Re: RATDVD - why doesn't this forum use it?

RATDVD is nothing like Winzip. RATDVD uses lossy compression and re-encodes the video and audio.

From their FAQ:
"Is the reconverted ratDVD (to DVD) as good as the original?

Yes! There might be some small limitations to the quality based on the settings chosen, but it is a fully functional, compatible, high quality DVD-Video."
So, basically RATDVD is a glorified DVDShrink. Two thumbs down.
