    Watching the U2 best of DVD the other day and was amazed to see my sony dvd record a bitrate of over 1500kbps!. Is this a record for a standard DVD? how does this bitrate thing actually work. Most DVD's that i have watched seem to have a bitrates starting at 192kbps (x files) up to 500kbps (although Moulin Rouge may be slightly higher)

    Max bit rate of DVD is 10.08 Mbps

    If you're talking of audio only then DTS (on DVD) can be from 64 to 1536 Kbps, typical values are 754.5 or 1509.25 kbps.

    DD can be from 64 to 448 kbps, typically DD 2.0 will be 192 kbps.
