Category Video File
Description Released in 1995, DVD is a removable storage device. They quickly overtook VHS to become the most popular format for the distribution of video due to their durability (approximately 100 years) and the superior quality of the image. DVD is slowly being overtaken by Blu-Ray which provides a further improvement in terms of quality. Another threat to the sales of DVDs are the rise of online streaming services such as Netflix which allow a user instant access to video with similar or superior picture quality. At its peak several hundred million DVDs were sold yearly.

Technical Details DVD uses a MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 compression, however MPEG-2 supports higher resolution, up to 720x576 pixels. The DVD format also supports several types of audio including MP2 and Dolby Digital. A DVD may also include subtitles which are stored as bitmap images meaning that any language can be stored as subtitles. DVDs may also contain chapters which allow the user to easily navigate to a specific point in the video. Although not part of the official DVD Video specification, a number of distributors have added copy protection to limit the ease with which a DVD may be ripped and copied.

Technical Details AVI is a derivative of the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF), which divides a file's data into blocks, or chunks. Each chunk is identified by a FourCC tag. An AVI file takes the form of a single chunk in a RIFF formatted file, which is then subdivided into two mandatory chunks and one optional chunk. The first sub-chunk is identified by the hdrl tag. This sub-chunk is the file header and contains metadata about the video, such as its width, height and frame rate. The second sub-chunk is identified by the movi tag. This chunk contains the actual audio/visual data that make up the AVI movie. The third optional sub-chunk is identified by the idx1 tag which indexes the offsets of the data chunks within the file.
