Re: Transfer Rates -DVD.

> Does anyone know what it means by Transfer Rate, when I am playing a DVD ?

The transfer rate is the data rate for the pictures you are watching.  The
DVD standard allows for variable compression much like an Avid where the
compression varies to make the final file or frame fit within a specific
size range.  The higher the data rate the lower the compression.

Some DVDs are better than others.  It depends on the total running time, the
amount of time they take to compress the video, and the overall picture
noise.  The beter the transfer and the better the mastering the lower the
data rate can be without any percevable picture degredation.

Also your perceved enjoyment will be governed by content !
