The quality of movies in internet

Films obtained before the premiere

They are copies of promotional use to members of filming, film critics and members of academia. Such formats are usually available before the film is released in theaters. Although the quality is usually very high, comparable with that of a commercial DVD, the film can include messages, black and white scenes or scenes deleted in the final version.

The format  R5  is a non – promotional commercial version, but usually released before the rest of the world.

R5

It is a commercial DVD Region 5 (See regional codes of the DVD ). The region 5 extends across most ofAfrica and much of Asia, including Russia and India.

The format  R5  differs from the other regions before being released because they do not have a subsequent image processing. This method is used by producers to compete with piracy in areas where piracy is common. The  R5  are not intended to be sold in other regions, but this does not prevent being distributed on the Internet.

As is the case with the format  Screener , if the player is in another language, the image is synchronized with an audio track from another source. These  R5  is added the label  LiNE  if the sound has been captured directly from an audio (eg, some cinemas have headphone jacks for hearing impaired).

R5 Good to very good (close to DVD) Good to very good (close to DVD) Very common

Screener (SCR)

It is a DVD or Blu-ray Disc promotional use. These discs contain messages stating that their use is promotional and sometimes include scenes in black and white, but their quality is often very similar to the commercial DVDs.

Sometimes the image is extracted from a promotional DVD in another language and then synchronized with the captured audio sound system of a movie theater, like the format  Telesync , but the image quality is far superior to the latter. These  Screener  is added the label  LiNE .

Often the term is confused  Screener  with  Cam  or  Telesync  to think that is a recording made in a theater, but it is actually a high – quality format very similar to  DVDRip .

Telecine (TC)

It is a copy made by a machine that transfers theputlocker movies from the analog roll, used by film projectors to digital format. Such releases are quite rare because the machines that convert are very expensive and large, although lately are becoming popular. The format  Telecine  has basically the same quality as a DVD, as this is the technique used by producers to digitize a movie DVD. However, the result is inferior since the analog rolls used by movie theaters are lower quality than the originals.

Workprint (WP)

It is a copy made of a version of a movie unfinished. For this reason you may have scenes without cuts or missing material appear in the final film. They may also lack the effects are added in post-production.

Some  Workprint  have a time index in a corner or the top edge, and in some cases, include a watermark.

Obtained films in cinemas

They are recordings made with a video camera in film. In this category are the formats with lower quality, but usually get Internet quickly after the release of the film. Sometimes, when recordings are made in pre-premiere screenings, the film can reach the Internet rather than in theaters.

Cam

Both the image and sound are recorded by a video camera. The image quality depends on many factors such as the quality of the camera or the angle from which it is recorded. In addition, the camera can record the shadows of the spectators when entering or leaving the cinema. On the other hand, the audio is recorded ambient sound film by the camera microphone. Sometimes whispers, laughs or coughs viewers hear, what makes the sound quality is poor. The low quality of this format makes it quite unpopular.

Telesync (TS)

The image is recorded on film with a video camera, as in the format  Cam , but differs from this in that audio is captured directly from the sound of the room from the main system or through connectors special headphones for hearing dispacidad. Then you need to synchronize the audio and video in a single file. The fact capture the sound instead of recording it makes the quality increases considerably.Often they launch  Cam  are mislabeled as  Telesync .

In India, where most films come from Bollywood, hawking usual format movie  PDVD , also known as Pre-DVD . This format is a copy  Cam  or  Telesync  low quality recorded on a DVD. It is sometimes confused with the format  DVDRip  due to the similarity of the name.

Films obtained from commercial media

In this category are the best qualities. Sources are DVDs, VHS tapes and some others. These films require first has launched the original DVD (or VHS or corresponding source). Because launches usually differ in several months in different parts of the world, some variants are to copy the image of foreign DVD (eg released in Japan), and then add the audio or subtitle obtained from another source, in the language destination.

The types of digital sources and then analog sources (VHS) is first indicated.

DVDFull

It is an exact copy of the contents of a commercial DVD. In most cases the full contents of the original DVD. Sometimes when the DVD is released in format  DVD9  (8.5GB double layer), extra content such as additional languages or interviews with actors so it can be recorded in a deleted  DVD5  (4.7GB). Rarely instead of eliminating content is re-compressed video, reducing the quality and size.

DVDRip

The picture and sound are extracted from a commercial DVD or  DVDFull  and compressed using codecs that reduce their quality and size. The loss of quality can be almost imperceptible.

For image compression usually Xvid and DivX (increasingly popular) codecs used and the MP3 (stereo) or AC3 5.1 (surround) audio. image and sound is then stored in a single file, typically with AVI format. In the compression process it is intended that the size of the resulting file can be recorded on a CD (700MB), but are increasingly frequent rips greater than 1GB (typically 1.4 GB) size.

All contents of the DVD extras are eliminated although sometimes two audio tracks, the original version and the dubbed be included. In this case the label is added  DUAL .

HDRip

It is very similar to the format  DVDRip . The main difference is that the picture and sound are extracted from a Blu-ray Disc, which makes the quality is slightly higher.

Increasing quality occurs because codecs have a higher quality source on which to perform the compression process compresión.El is the same as in  DVDRip , producing a video file size 700 MB or 1.4 GB which can contain several audio tracks.

Films obtained from television broadcasts

These are the series and / or anime that are recorded from television programs, also known as DVBRip to the general classification.

HDTV: High Definition Digital

Captured from a digital high definition broadcast. Quality: better than a DVD, 1920 × 1080 pixels.

Digital Signal DSRip

Catches from a satellite signal. The image is not as sharp as that of a HDTV capture, but also is very good

Or PDTV Satrip: Satellite digital

Captured from a digital broadcast (satellite). Quality: quasi-dvd.

TVrip: cable TV or air

Recorded from an analog broadcast TV.

TDTrip

Recorded from a broadcast digital terrestrial television, like DSRip.

rater

Repack:  If a group has released a movie / series with some failure, will draw a new version that will call repack.
Nuked:  Not approved. Version that does not meet the rules ripping several groups have agreed together when recording a movie. Standards: tdx. There are many reasons, typical are:
Bad a / r:  Bad aspect ratio. Wrong aspect ratio. The image is higher or narrower than it should be.
Bad ivtc:  Inverse Telecine Wrong. Inverse Telecine process is to change the number of frames per second (fps, frames per second). To achieve higher compression, often reduce this amount to 23.976 fps, regarded in the industry as the minimum acceptable. Bad ivtc notes that this process was carried out with errors.
Proper:  The practice indicates that the first to publish a movie (usually cam or telesync) wins the race (achieves greater P2P broadcast media) and the second can not reach it . But if the quality of the first publication is low, another group will have the opportunity to publish an “appropriate” (proper) version of the same movie. The reason to take the proper version must be included in the NFO.
Limited:  A movie “limited” means that seen in less than 250 theaters in the US

Internal:  They are distributed on an “internal” for several reasons. Usually it is to recover old rips DVD (ie, they are duplicating a movie already published some time), or when the source is a recording of poor quality and do not want to nukee. The internals are not governed by the above standards (if internal, can put there any garbage).
