Just annoys me that people aren't educated on codecs so that what you listen to is about one tenth of what left the studio. MP3 in it's highest format isn't even the one tenth...
I think most people know about codecs and their differences, except maybe their ears (including mine :)) are not as sensitive as yours when listening to music. What player are you using?
So, you see zploek... I can't vote because my choice is not in your list.
I'm surprised no one here is using home theater system to watch the movies. I've been using a home theater set for a couple of years now. I copy the movies to external hard drive, connect to an HD player and home theater system and 40" TV. HD movies with Dolby Digital 6 channels (or DTS) are really fantastic.
Babakaj, you're right. Nowadays HDD is much cheaper, with bigger capacity. But I guess I'm still old fashioned. I like to put the cddvd in it's jacket complete with the movie poster cover art and store in an album
JanOve, that was really an eye-opening explanation. Thank you.
Again, you couldn't be more right. Yes, old hardware. I have a home cinema system, with a receiver that can produce AC3 6 channel. So I usually don't go for movies with mp3 sound. Thus, no 1 CD rip for me... which explains my original post. Recently I also purchased an HD player with external harddisk and trying out the HD movies. I can play MKV files with AC3 sound rather well. But it comes to movies with ACC audio my receiver stumbles. It doesn't recognize ACC audio. I've read in various forum that many people have the same problem. Harware hardware hardware...
Who actually determines the value of Quality Factor (QF)for DVDRips? I think it's high time for the QF to change. As I mentioned before, fitting a movie onto cds are so old. Since DVD is so cheap now, why not use it as a standard? In that way encoders can increase data rate to increase video quality, and use better quality AC3 audio instead of mp3.
You are so right JanOve. Target size encoding to fit CD medium is so ancient. Nowadays DVD disc is as cheap as CDR. Why sacrifice quality for the sake of fitting onto a CD?
I didn't know posts will be edited. Someone edited my previous post. It must be someone from kat, I guess. Well, thank you.
No, it's not JanOve. This is about the resolution of DVDRip movies.
Why are most DVDRip movies come with width size less than 720 pixels? For example there are movies with 640 x 272 pixels or, in case of the new Men In black 3, 624 x 336 pixels. I am using a dvd player that play avi movies, but doesn't have upscaling capability. So the picture on my TV has black bars on all four sides. My question is, why do the rippers choose that dimension?
