guys, which format is the best in terms of visual quality like DVDs are way better than VCDs.
hmmm... it must be .avi
Simply great! compressed & excellent sound & video quality!
Among DVD, DIVX and MPEG...DVD is the BEST one in quality but least one in quantity(size).
DVD is great quality(picture and sound) but takes heavy size.
DivX is good quality(picture&sound) least size just equal to mpeg-1
MPEG actually having 3 versions in video category they are mpeg-1 mpeg-2 and mpeg-4.
I think in your view you are asking about VCD(MPEG-1).... which is least quality among DVD Divx...
I will prefer divx because of good quality as well as least size.
Divx players(not softwares physical players) also available...so this one may be the next video generaion in common world. At present in IT world Divx is popular.
Check Below details...take decision which one is better:
TYPE------------------Resolution------------1 Minute file size
DVD(MPEG-2codec)------720 X 576---------------near to 50 MB
DivX((MPEG-4)-----------640 x 480 or lower-----1 to 10 MB
VCD(MPEG-1)-------------352 X 288-----------------10 MB
ne ways, based on current requirements ur best bet is XVID
i get near dvd quality results @ 756 kbps
if you compare quality with pirated stuff, then divx/xvid is ur best bet
as of orignals, DVD is good, but you can always encode divx with better bitrates
so ....... v here 2 compare dvdz n vcdz
unless u have an oil well in the middle-east n thus have enough space 2 rip n store each dvd that comes ur way or 4 that matter ( remember u have the moolah ) buy each n every 1 of them u like at planet M , i suggest u go with divx/xvid .
u can always alter things 2 ur liking . so as sunnydiv said , alter the bitrate 2 meet ur req. e.g. default audio ( mp3 ) encoding bitrate in Dr Divx is 64 kbps , u can bring it up2 128 ( the normal mp3 encoding value ) . but as u shud no , file size is proportional 2 the quality desired
why d u need an oil well dude....jus go to pallika n buy copies of original dvds for 100 bucks....nad 160 gb hdds are also pretty cheap.....
btw i'll go 4 divx...its a correct proportion between size n quality...
was referring 2 storing those dvdz in the original format , not converting them 2 divx or something 4 the ' fear ' of loss of some quality
most dvd moviez r bigger than 6GB , n that 160 GB hdd wont hold on 4 long . or even make that 2 of them if some1 is as big a movie buff as my frnd ( has bout 300 movies , scattered here n there )
ofcourse .avi directly corresponds to DIVX .. isn't it ???
if space is the probles then .avi or DivX
if not then surely .vob
guys I tell u that dvd is the best among quality. Exellent sound and video. Divx is the next. I don't have third!
I recently Installed A1 DVD Ripper, and DivX Pro 5.2.1 . While Encoding a movie [XXX2] I set the setting to Max Quality and Slow Speed. Damn. The encoding was being done at 2fps !! Estimated time : 19 hrs.
yes! its damn! sloooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww!
read this guys,
DVD rocks, the quality is better than the others.
MPEG4 is quite good too. I tried encoding some tv captures to that format and was quite pleased with the results. File size is small and picture quality is good.
Yes mpeg4(Moving Pictures Engineers Group-4) is the lates from them and has better o/p.
