And check that your dvd will burn dual layer disks.

DVD is 4.7 but not all that is available for the user .shrink will make it fit. Cant see where shrink would fail a 7 +G/BYte dual layer disc is usually only compressed by around 40 to 60 percent to fit so there is ample room for more compression

DVD Shrink gives you the opportunity to remove subtitles/foreign language dialogue/adverts/trailers etc. Doing this may give you enough room.
