Re: Bluray on regular DVD?

please correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that the idea of HD was to give the viewer a better quality image on the screen. If you tinker with the components needed to give this extra quality and the result is an unacceptable image quality then in the eyes of the AVERAGE viewer it is not HD. The question to be asked is why bother with the expense of HD equipment if you are going to produce an image that doesn't look like HD. The gentleman who claimed to have 50mins of HD on a standard DVD said it looked good.He did not mention any tinkering with bitrates etc. If he didn't, the disc must of been burnt as normal SD by the burning programme. I stand by my earlier statement, until proven wrong, that you can't put 50 mins of HD on a standard DVD and make it look Good.

Roy, it's my understanding that you can get somewhere between 20 and 30 min. of HD on a standard DVD.
With that in mind, it is possible to get 50 min. of HD if you're using a dual-layer DVD.
Unfortunately David didn't say if he's using a single or dual-layer DVD to get that much HD footage on it.

Mike. I never thought about using a double layer DVD as I understand some people have problems with them, so I've never tried them. Yes that would make make the difference of course. You are on the ball as usual. Regards

You're right I think I got closer to 20 mins. That's what happens when you type up a quick reply at work. When I've done it I just chose the burn to B-Ray disc option and by default, if I remember right, there are 3 options. On shorter videos I would take the higher option. I one of my longer videos I had to drop down to the middle level. Either way the default levels have nice quality and have worked on my player and PS3. I like that it stays HD and I can play it back easily. I could also pull the files off for an edit or posting to the web if needed. Although I have tried that yet, and it also depends on the video and use of it. Currently most of the video I do that with is of my son and daughter dancing. Cheers.
