Went to the local Video rental place and they had the usual bunch of previously viewed movies. So, I bought a couple, one of them was KingKong, was never a big fan of that movie, but it was only 6 bucks.
Brought it home and put it into my player and it had several skips and one spot where it froze up for almost a minute. I thought why not try a backup with DVDFab? Did a copy and the copy plays just fine, no skips at all. I did a “customize” and the compression was at about 56%, if I recall, (it is over 3 hours).
I really can’t tell any difference on my “state of the art” 27" JVC
Probably never watch the stupid thing again mind you.
