Default Blu-ray vs. HD DVD (an in depth analysis)

Blu-ray Codecs
MPEG2 157(titles) 35.60 %
AVC 162(titles) 36.73 %
VC-1 122(titles) 27.66 %

HD DVD Codecs
Codecs
MPEG2 11(titles) 3.19 %
AVC 35(titles) 10.14 %
VC-1 299(titles) 86.67 %

HD DVD has the most VC-1 titles, and the highest majority of VC-1 titles. The rumor that most of the Blu-ray discs use VC-1 as a primary compression is false.
HD DVD's argument is true. They do use VC-1 more.


Blu-ray Exclusives
Exclusive 284(titles) 62.56 %
Not Exclusive 170(titles) 37.44 %

HD DVD Exclusives
Exclusive 220(titles) 56.41 %
Not Exclusive 170(titles) 43.59 %

Blu-ray wins in this round as for exclusives.

Why is this still interesting now the format war is bascially over?

Anyway you should probably add in some perspective to these numbers. MPEG2 codecs have been steadily decreasing while both AVC (the best codec IMO) and VC-1 (second best) have been steadily rising the past year. Anyway where have you heard that rumor? I've never heard it anywhere and I've been reading a lot of HD DVD and Blu-ray the past months.

And why not throw in the stats about audio codecs where Blu-ray have the clear advantage?

I hate to say it, but just IMO, BR has the better exclusive titles.

Yet another reason I chose HD-DVD, If or when Sony wins I will buy every HD DVD I can get my hands on thats on sale or BOGO. I can't for the life of me understand why sony as they preach how they say "we know what the customer want" doesn't use the VC1 only for all of there movies.

I don't wanna sound smart or anything, but what happens when you have your HD-DVD player, 100 movies and then HD-DVD dies? What happens when they stop making HD-DVDs? Do you still say that your money was well invested? This is why I wanted to wait it out, hopefully if BR wins, then it will be around for more than just 3 years.

Consumer electronics aren't an investment. I got my money's worth out of my players long ago.

I wouldn't even call it a analysis. All he is doing is comparing some numbers, and doesn't do a good job at it. This is what you get for a lack of any formal or informal training in the field.

Well do you think it's an indepth analysis? I'm not trying to offend him, just speaking my mind. You are obviously trying to offend, though I couldn't care less of that aweful attempt
