IMHO, don't get involved with the whole compression thing -
Short answer, no there is no single program to strip out extras like DVDShrink, however, the process is VERY easy using 3 (or 4) programs:
I repeat, it's VERY easy to do this (and I hate learning new things) - strip out everything except the main movie and you are almost always left with an iso smaller than 25 gb

What kind of time is required for this (curious, not challenging) - in reading the thread on this (beta) product is appears that folks were spending up to 24 hours simply re-encoding a single movie w/o extras-
Maybe it's gotten better?

Do you use BD Rebuilder at all? I downloaded TSMuxer, but have no idea how to use it yet lol.

I'm a long-time user of DVD-Rebuilder (also developed by jDobbs) and it's by far the best app available for compressing standard DVDs. Lots of people like DVD Shrink but DVD-RB blows it out of the water with respect to picture quality...

From my experience, this is not true! If you enable the 2-pass encoding in DVD Shrink, the results are equal (and some times better) than with DVD Rebuilder. Also, DVD SHrink is a 100 times faster...

DVD9s are still expensive if you want to buy the good stuff. Hit and miss cheap off a spindle discs can be had for little less than a buck. But my guess is that it will be a long long time before even 25GB discs are affordable.
