EASIEST, not necessarily best, is to use DVDShrink's re-author mode. Drag just the movie to a new disc layout-- you should be able to get most movies on a single disc without much compression, sometimes without any. Especially if you're willing to drop a PCM audio track, or a DTS track (and keep the AC3). If nothing else, the compression should be much less than it was before. This gives you JUST the movie, no menus or anything.
Then, you can use the "normal" DVD shrink mode and compress the movie as tight as possible, taking out ALL soundtracks, etc, and leave the extras as uncompressed as possible. Then burn that.
If you actually want to split the movie in half, you're going to have to actually re-author it, you probably won't be able to just use a tool like DVD Decryptor to do that (you'll use it to rip the files, but then you'll need to do something else to re-author). Check the guides at www.doom9.net .

you can split with just movie or whole movie, and then add a picture saying please insert disk 2
its kinda nice, especially for hdtvs or any kind of high def tv

Another possibility is to buy a DL writer and use DVD-9 discs.
BTW...the reason DVDDecrypter failed was because you didn't properly author,the second disc didn't have .IFO and .BUP files.

Yes I agree if you compress the video to 80% of it's original size or more it's fine, I have MANY movies though that are 7-8gb which requires you to compress to 60-50% of original size and this is where I begin to see the problem on the 52" Hitachi Screen. It's not the reader, though I'm sure that could be higher quality (Phillips 642.)
Example, Seven: Criterion collection, 8.5gb movie only, yes with some extra audio tracks like DTS, 5.1, prologic, however if my DVD's are ever lost destroyed or stolen I want to be able to have all that stuff, in case in the future I get a DTS receiver, or if I take the DVD to someone's house that doesn't have 5.1. Bottom line, I want everything I paid for in the DVD in my backup, that includes the level of quality of the video, but I don't want to have to pay for another copy of it, and I don't want to pay $5 a disc for dual layer.
I tried DVD FAB and noticed that it only works when you copy the individual files over not with ISO's so I think I'll try the set start and stop frames thing with DVD shrink with no compression.
Too many moives in a day huh? I have the same problem. I'm doing like 5-10 movies a day. If I don't have to use my p4 celeron 2.0 to crunch the numbers needed for compression I think I'm much better off
