    Okay, Im quite familar with Dvdshrink AND dvd decryptor, but my question is this

    What is a subpicture and what is ac3 2chan english

    I have looked and done the guides but I dont know what to uncheck I DO have 5.1 surround sound.

    Should I always uncheck subpictures AND ac3 2channel or not? Thanks OSNN MEMBERS!

    I think AC3 2chan english is the stereo (2ch) audio for the movie, could be wrong tho'.

    If you've got room for on the disk, I'd say burn it. Just a guess, but sub-picture might be secondary menu pics.

    Sometimes the 2-channel audio is director's commentary too. Either way, most DVD players that are not outputting 5.1 sound will downmix a 5.1 track to stereo.

    Well there isnt a big deal about removing it. Why do u need to worry about it so much if space isnt an issue? I use dvd shrink and my dvds play fine when selected.

    ac3 is just a compression standard, similar to mp3, except that it can handle multiple channels.

    What is a subpicture and what is ac3 2chan english?

    Subpicture means subtitles, aka all the audio converted to text on the bottom of the screen for the hearing impaired.

    AC3 2chan english... means 2 channel stereo audio, i always just pic either 5.1 digital or dts. english of course.

    When i am using dvd shrink i just uncheck everything except the best audio and the movie itself. dont need anything else.
