Default Is there anyone out there?

I was just wondering. Because DVD Shrink is the absolute best at backing up DVD movies why isn't there anyone out there to update it so that it can backup these new movies with these new protections (i.e. Accross). I know that Mr. Shrink himself is no longer taking care of DVD Shrink anymore so why doesn't someone take over and continue updated this wonderful program. If you are a computer genius and your out there please take care of this for everyone to enjoy. Is there anyone out there?

@Movie Lover

Hello

That can't be done legally since DVD Shrink was never Open Source. NERO Recode appears to be based on DVD Shrink - the author supposedly now works for Ahead-NERO. So you might want to make suggestions for improvements to them

A correction - I am reliably informed that he does not work for Nero.

All this time the rumor was Shrink worked for Nero, is he working for somebody else or did he just stop supporting DVD Shrink?

If you search the forums for posts by dvdshrink, you will see he is not allowed to give the source code out. Implication - he sold it (probably to Ner0). Do I know this for sure? No, but it's a fair bet.

Why? When they can buy a far superior product than they could ever write?

That's why they are Ner0

Now you all are arguing/discussing semantics, just because you don't have a
9-5 job doesn't mean you don't work for a company. Shrink, if he sold his code to Ahead, must have some agreement to support it thru further work
as a consultant. And I am sure Ahead signed him to a non-competetion clause as well. For obvious reasons Shrink can never come out of the closet.
Maybe he was a figment of our imaginations.
