I wonder if this will improve the chances that either format will become standard.
I hope to god there's a single standard. It's annoying as hell for the consumer when companies try and proclaim that their product is better than the competing one, obviously in a market such as cell phones, mp3 players and the like it's fine, but when it comes to movie/music/data formats, it's just annoying
*Does the blu-ray dance*
i bet blue-ray will triumph
It offers more capacity (A lot more) than HD-DVD, and the major flaw which was the lack of support for video compression MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC has been overcome making it in no way inferior to HD-DVD.
Other than higher production costs (let's face it, superior products cost more to make) for Blu-Ray, I can see no reason at all for anyone to back HD-DVD.
i dont know why we cant just go back to Betamax
p.s. i dont care which one "wins" as long as i can use it without breaking the bank ten-fold
i envision a day when flash 20 gigs are as cheap as floppys.
Yep. The writable DVD situations sucked, and still does if you ask me. It's really gonna suck if there isn't any standardization.
lol for some reason i confused blu-ray for ray-ban those shades and stuff lol nothing to do with what we're talking here
its because of me, that you are confused hehe
yea i think so coz you talk about them sometimes
As with most things it will probably depend on who the porn industry goes with. They set VHS and DVD as the standard.
It is annoying, but I've currently got no problem with it, most the devices I own will support both + and -, however I only ever buy - discs and they work with everything I own, as they do with the devices my friends and family own. Only device I've found that doesn't like - is the PS2, but I'm not going to go buy a bulk of + discs just to watch movies/etc on a Ps2, that's why we have a DVD player
What? Porn comes in .avi format... everyone knows that...
It would be useless to put porn on blue ray cause they are so short and crappy. Anyway...yeah blue ray is gonna kick arse!
It's got nothing to do with the length, it's the encoding. You could fit extremely high quality movies onto a single BD. I can't wait for it, because current DVD's are just crap, superbit's an improvement, but could be better.
Finally something intelligent is said here! Best post ever Xie
Not to mention that most of the writable DVD drives can't even write discs that work in most DVD players, it seems.
*hugs my Plextor drive*
Here's a good article from Macworld about the technology and Apple's support of it.
