DVD has certainly taken the market by storm. From it's creation it is also an interesting to see how technology and political aspects became part of the final standard. The technical aspects of the DVD decryption technology are also interesting demonstrations that prove that with enough effort and willpower no current day encryption digital encryption technology is completely safe.
At the start of 2000, to encode DVDs you needed to have half a dozen utilities and go through a steep learning curve as most of the programs were all command line driven, and needed a fair amount of setting up. Today friendlier software with very good GUIs have been developed. These are tremendously easier to use and more integrated compared to the good old days.
The short guide that I will be describing may not produce the very best quality output, and expose the kind of features which those advance programs have, but certainly it's the easiest to use and the output is of very good quality.
