Even though DVD Shrink hasn’t been updated in several years, to split DVD title, DVD Shrink is still a good program. DVDShrink is software to backup DVD discs. You can utilize this software in conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup copy of any DVD video. Its "Full-Disk" mode enables you to keep the structure of the original DVD intact. You can even apply different levels of compression to each title (menus, movie, extras), and deselect audio/subpicture streams. Time to figure out how to split DVD title into several small pieces with DVD Shrink.

You might be a bit surprised to find out just how many titles a DVD has because many of them are nothing more than short video clips that don’t have a separate menu. Before you can start selecting titles to keep, you will need to identify them. Fortunately, DVD Shrink makes this easy.

Step 1. You can open DVD files by either dragging a VIDEO_TS folder to the DVD Shrink window or clicking the Open Files button and browsing. It will take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes to parse all the IFO files, depending on the speed of your computer.

Step 2. Next, You can see that the layout of my disc is strange, where some of the clips (this is a concert DVD) are put into the “Extras” section. DVD Shrink will separate the longest title on your disc as the “Main Movie”. To determine whether you want to keep a particular title you can select it and use the “Preview” pane to view it.

Step 3. Once you have figured out which titles you want to extract, you can switch to the option “Reauthor” mode, which will allow you to create custom layout and in the given case create a DVD structure containing only the clips.

Step 4. You can drag and drop titles into “DVD structure” pane.

Step 5. Then you can click “Compression settings” tab and make sure “No compression” setting is selected under “Video” section. If it is, you just select all tracks and select “No Compression” in the drop-down list.

Step 6. Finally, you will find a dialog box where you can select the destination for the new DVD files. Select the folder name (for the sake of the example let’s call it “Original”). Hit “OK”. You’ll see your DVD being copied with live preview.

VobBlanker is a tool able to blank, replace, cut and strip titles from a DVD while maintaining the overall layout, including menu and navigation. What is more, VobBlanker also has special features like reduce to still with or without audio complete PGCs or single Cells, or splitting cells capability.

Step 2. Once the file is read, it will open the Video Title Sets in the DVD (basically the Audio/Video/Menu container files) and have the extension of .VOB. And it is really important to understand the various contents and the information provided in this screen before we proceed further.

Step 3. Select each VTS. a new series of text will appear in the bottom box. Then you can select each PGC to see what it contains. You can watch in the mini-viewer top right or hit preview. In fact, each VTS has a menu as well. if it’s a large menu and I have blanked the VTS, I will go in and edit/blank the menu as well.

Step 4. Once we have determined that we don’t need this complete Video, we “Close” the Window and move back to the mainscreen and right-click on the PGC and select “blank”.

Step 5. If you have completed your editing and still have not reached your target size, there is more you can do to rid yourself of unwanted files. i.e. the French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.

Step 6. To remove unwanted audio, just select the main movie from the bottom box in the application then hit the "strip" button.

Step 7. When you are satisfied with your work, hit “Process” at the bottom of the application window. In the end, 20 – 30 minutes later, you will have your movie.
