What are the differences between DVD and VHF?

Mar 01st, 2010by dvdxplayer 1,280 views |Comments Off

A. Audio and video information on VHS tape is imbedded on a magnetic imprint that has been recorded on video tape and is physically read by a rotating head in a VCR. Video and audio information on a DVD is imbedded in physically stamped pits that are read optically by a laser.

In an ironic twist of fate, a DVD, physically has more in common with the traditional vinyl record than video tape. Audio signals on a vinyl record are imprinted in physical grooves, which are physically read by a stylus. The difference, besides the groove vs pits disc construction, is that the signal on a vinyl record is an analog waveform and the signal on a DVD are digital bits.

B. DVD can support both standard 4×3 and anamorphic widescreen 16×9 screen aspect ratios.

C. DVD is capable of providing twice the video resolution than VHS, making for a much more detailed image and better color consistency.

D. You can access any part of the DVD in a random or very fast manner, whereas you have to fast forward or rewind a VHS tape to find a specific location on the tape.

E. DVD is capable of interactive menu access and added features, such as multiple language tracks, audio commentaries, and additional features not capable on the VHS format. DVD also supports Closed Captioning and On/Off Subtitling in several lauguages.

F. In addition DVD supports synchronized multiple camera angle viewing, provided the filmmaker supplies the alternate camera angle footage shot during the filming process to the DVD production staff.

G. DVDs are not affected by magnetic fields. Commercial DVDs cannot be erased.

What Is The Difference Between Movie DVDs And DVDs Made On A DVD recorder Or PC?

Mar 01st, 2010by dvdxplayer 1,201 views |Comments Off

The difference between commercially made DVD movies and DVDs you make at home on a DVD recorder or PC, is that the DVD movies you purchase at the video store are physically stamped, while DVDs you make at home on your DVD recorder or PC are optically burned by a laser. This makes the surface construction and reflective properties of commercial and home DVDs slightly different, but both types can be played on most DVD players, with some exceptions related to the consumer DVD recording format used.

Is there anywhere on your site that tells me what the difference between v4.5 and 5.0?

So far, Blu-ray player manufacturers have included the ability for their units to playback standard DVDs, this is expected to continue. This means your current DVD library is playable on either a Blu-ray Disc. Also, when you play a standard DVD in a Blu-ray Disc player, you can view it at standard DVD resolution or have the player upscale the DVD playback signal to match 720p/1080i or 1080p mode that will be a better match for viewing on an HDTV.

Can I rip a DVD which zone does not match the zone of my DVD-ROM drive?

Feb 13th, 2010by dvdxplayer 2,123 views |1 Comments

It depends. If the ripping program uses the ASPI method (instant) for retreiving the decryption key then the region of the disc and the drive must match (or the drive must be RPC-1 = regionfree). Only DVD Decrypter 3 and SmartRipper support the ASPI method. Both of these programs will use the normal ‘Brute Force’ cracking method (used by all the other decrypting tools) if the ASPI one fails.
