[QUOTE=kirby7777;2669152]Sorry, I meant DVD-R DL.
Thanks Some Random Guy. Your comment noted.
Wonder why DVD-R DL is so bad for DVD video here. I was told that DVD-R SL is better than DVD+R SL for playing video in stand alone DVD player. Maybe in the realm of DL it is the reverse …[/QUOTE]
DVD-R DL is not “bad” for DVD video if you live in Japan :). That format gained good acceptance in Asia. Compatibility with SAPs in the rest of the world is not as good as DVD+R DL with booktype set to DVD-ROM. Which most burners are happy to do for you.
Have a look here for a reasonably unbiased take on DVD-R vs DVD+R.
DVD+R booktyped to DVD-ROM has good compatibility. But I believe that DVD-R has become a bit more widespread as a result of no worries about booktyping.
