    It is versatile which is commonly used.
    but
    Wikipedia extract-
    "DVD (commonly known as "Digital Versatile Disc" or "Digital Video Disc")"
    Webopedia extract
    DvD is "Short for digital versatile disc or digital video disc"

    Therefore both are correct

    It's versatile but was mainly devloped for storing high def video so also called video.. But when speaking technically it's versatile..

    that the f i had read in my multimedia lectures few year ago :)

    The correct term for 'V' is Versatile
    Video is not the correct term.

    Your wish. Whatever you choose. To me, "Versatile" sounds cooler.
