    Hallo there ,

    Recently we have in our market DVD discs having Two , three, four movies in single disc . They come in different combinations Like Same star differnt movies. Same theme movies . Trilogy like Godfather, Back to the future ,Jaws etc . Four movies in one disc like Alien , Omen etc.Some features are sacrificed like scene selection and other items in the menu is not available only Language selection and play is aavailable but some disc have more feature . This discs are produced in countries like , Malayasia and Pakistan .They have almost caught up with the quality of the original Discs . Its quite rampant in Asian countries but nobody even the record companies give it any importance . By the way I am writing this as a piece of information only , I am not trying to sell or endorse piracy in any way . Moderator if this violates the forum rules feel free to erase this thread .

    I very much doubt having four films on one disc will result in good quality

    800MB divx/xvid films are certainly watchable, and if they are 1.5GB they are pretty much identical to the full movie.

    Apparently ;-)

    Ive seen Divx movies and believe me playin them on a 25inch tv or bigger will result in a pixellated mess and indeed most don't even look good when blown up to fill a 15inch computer monitor.

    Perhaps they are using dvd18. That makes them more up to date than most uk companies!

    Maybe the Pirated DVD manufactureres are using DVD having more storege then the standard 4.7 GB may be 17 Gigabyte . The picture quality is the same as original and but the lack in the sound section although when you play the disc it will show DTS or Dolby Digital but the sound quality is much inferior to the original .


    Rosemanbridge ,

    You are right those of us who are spending lot of money on HI Fi are still sticking to the original and our colection is ten times or more less then who are collecting the pitated ones. In Asian countries not everybody is paying attention for Home theater or sound quality the mass population only have TV and DVd player and dont even know about Home Theater. Also the players manufactured in Taiwan , China , Malaisa are very cheap something like US $ 70 but have good feature . The collection of Pirated disc is enormus and they increasing tenfolds everey few months .

    Hi,

    If it's pirated or a bootleg, then the disc(s) in question won't be going anywhere near my DVD player!

    The only thing a pirated DVD is useful for, is either as a drinks coaster, or a wind chime! :D

    And does anyone else feel that fitting the entire "Godfather Trilogy" onto one single disc (a combined running time of nearly 9.5 hours) is going to result in nothing but a pixellated mass - no matter how big the disc's storage size is?!

    Pooch
