When copying a dvd-movie, afther ripping I use the dvd-shrink movie only mode, and remove all the unwanted subtitles and audio. Thereafther, I encode/rebuild it with DVD-RB+HC encoder. Great quality, but I don’t want to go <70% compression.
There are three types of audio streams:
- 2.0 stereo
- 5.1 Dolby Digital
Off Course, I prefer DTS. Some movies have all these streams, others only have the DD stream (so no stereo!?)
Sometimes I can only choose DTS, because otherwise it will be encoded to much (DVD-RB, HC-encoder, it’s really as good as CCE) My question is; can this movie still be viewed at a tv with only stereo? (so the speakers of the TV)
Also, why do some movies also have a stereo track + DD, while others only have a 5.1 DD stream…? 5.1 also plays as stereo when needed I suppose…
Hope you can help me to understand the above, it’s all quite confusing…
