Porn dvd vs reg.dvd movies

why is it that when I back up a porn DVD that the video quality is very bad but when I back up a regular DVD,such as Iron Man or The Darknight with even higher GB or the same tthe video turn out better? Why is this, is porn movies differnt video format than regular movies?

the original video is of a lower bitrate, so when compression is applied, the quality is less.

I’m guessing the MPEG-2 encoders they use for those run like on a PC or Mac. The big boys use hardware encoders (still basically computers, but highly specialized).

I myself have never notice any lose of picture quality in any adult films That I have ever done :cool: and believe me I’ve done a few :bigsmile:

OMG! Not you Mr. Tim, I just can’t believe you have done any XXX movies

I too noticed this issue backing up Adult movies. My solution was to purchase DVDFAb and back up these movies on two single layer dvd’s thus I do not loose any video quality. When you think about it, it is much cheaper to purchase DVDFab then pay for Dual Layer DVD’s, many of which turn out to be coasters. Also it is cheaper to buy storage for the extra dvd’s then to puchase dual layer media

Lot of those porno movies are 4 hours long with extras. 4 plus hours VS 2 plus hour, you will see the diference

Nice to know SJ has INTIMATE knowledge of this subject.

My comments are that generally the quality of the original XXX DVD’s is only as good as VHS tape quality hence the noticable lack of quality.

I have worked fo some of the big XXX players here in OZ and know that this is a fact…

i.e. Captured from VHS->DVD

^^^

That may be true, but assuming the copies are made without adding additional compression, they will look no worse than the originals…

:iagree::iagree::iagree: Tim dirty is goodddddddddddddddd sometimes :cool::cool::cool:
