DVD Squeeze is an application to convert your DVD movies (with or without the menus and bonus material) to CDs to be played in VCD compatible DVD players or from hard drives. The greatest benefit of using DVD Squeeze is the compression capability. You can compress a long DVD to fit on one CD with little image loss. This program is easy to install and has a great help information.

This product does an excellent job of ripping a movie and compressing it to DIVX. The only thing wrong with this product is that the burning software didn't work properly. There is a program to install that is supposed to help you copy your DVD to VCD or SVCD. Instead, it helps you copy the DVD to the computer and only change the movie's format. DVD Squeeze also comes with information on how to backup Playstation 2 games onto a CD-R.

The startup menu for this product is clearly marked and easy to understand, until you reach the software portion. Unless you read the manual and understand terms like DVIX and MPEG, these programs will be very confusing. In addition, DVD Squeeze doesn't have any contact information or technical support available from their website.

This product is very easy to install. No problems.

With the help of the Nero software, this product produced a great DVD copy using the CD-R medium and SVCD format. Since it only converts to a VCD or SVCD format, the quality is not as good as the original DVD. However, DVD Squeeze's compression method seems to be better than average.

Overall, DVD Squeeze is a good program if you are willing to limit your use to a CD burner and a DVD-ROM drive or only need to copy DVD games. However, for the price, there are better options available that can do much more.
