The 30GB capcity limit was always a non-issue for HD DVD (I have single layer HD discs that look stunning!). It was simply about patent rights but anyway, I'm sure Appaloosa will have more more than enough headroom for the encode if they're using VC1 or Mpeg4. People who complain about this clearly don't understand video encoding very well or the concept of diminished returns.

Try this: rip a standard def dvd and re-encode with Mpeg-4 at 3GB (more than enough headroom). Then re-encode the same at 6GB. See if you can tell the difference...

Why? Because it is WB. At least there is lossless audio.

Have you seen (or heard) the disc?

If not, what exactly are you complaining about?

you are missing the point..we all know that movies can fit on a 25 gb disc..what the issue is ..is price and the big push by bd last year as the reason why bd over hd dvd,, more space..higher bit rate..better audio, extras, etc..

25gb=14.99 max
25gb=not the superior format

So the size of the disc is more important than the encoding of the actual movie and audio transfer?

The size of the disc is the only thing that matters? I sure hope you don't own any of those 15GB HD DVDs that came out....or your stance would be a little hypocritical.

If 25GB = $14.99...how much should those 15GB discs have been? $8.99?

Once again...have you seen or heard the movie? Or are you basing your entire (flawed) view on the size of the disc?

Oh...and GET OVER IT ALREADY!

And?

Apparently the OP thinks 25GB are only worth $14.99. Tell him.

Warner is the worst studio in usage of BD50. Simple as that.
