Thread: 720p TV Rips or Web-DL 720p Quality difference?

  1. #1
    Hey,

    I'm at work and bored, so i thought i'd pose this question to the masses. What's the difference between the 720p TV rips you see and the Web-DL 720p quality wise? Aren't they both in 5.1 or just the Web-DL?

    I'm curious as to which i should download going forward for best quality.

    Thanks.

    This a great question... Both two
    what I want to say it's that sometimes hdtv is better, sometimes web is better. It's depends from the series, surely web have no logos, and the release time it's 6/8 hour after the air date not more.
    the hdtv comes from scene so the first rule is "be fast in release". They didn't pay much attention to do a really good rip, so most the time web are better, but not always. I think that sometimes web are not so good too. they come from itunes but I think that they are ripped and elaborated too and they have not a direct pure form.

    So it's depend if you search the 0day, hdtv are the perfect choice, if you prefer the quality web are better but not always.

    The quality on web-dl rips is generally better but it's certainly dependent on the episode at hand.

    And yes, they're both usually 5.1 AC3 unless the source doesn't have surround sound for some reason.

    For HD content, you shouldn't bother with YouTube's Flash player, specially with 1080p videos and an old computer. Download the video, install the CoreAVC codec, and watch it using the player of your choice.

    I used to have the CoreAVC installed on windows XP when I was using KMPLayer as it was clearly improving the rendering of my hd files, I didn't bother installed it back when I switched to a recent laptop on windows 7 because things were already smooth. Just curious if there are any benefits on recent PCs?

    Any PC can benefit from its extremely good code (CoreAVC can compete against hardware decoders in terms of speed). Even if you don't notice things to be smoother, less CPU usage means less processor temperature and a longer lifespan, so I'd definitely recommend it.

    Quality of any (including 720p, 1080p, 480p and others) videos highly depends on bitrate it was encoded with. You can see bitrate of encoded youtube video by right clicking the video and choosing "show video info". Dvd rips are usually with 2passes, that even increases video quality for the same output bitrate.

    I've been wondering this, but what exactly are Web-DL 720p videos? Are they videos that are actually available for download? I know there are TV shows that are streamed in HD on their official network websites, but I don't think it's possible to download them, only watch. I also know there are TV shows available for official purchasing on iTunes in compressed HD files, but my guess is that they're protected content, and only viewable by the person who bought them, and can't be downloaded/uploaded anywhere or made available on the internet for everyone. At least I don't recall ever seeing them anywhere. I'm not sure if that's what is meant by Web-DL 720p videos.
