    MiniDVDs MPEG-2 DVD DIGEST

      MiniDVD is an unofficial format which basically allows you to have DVD content (complete with interactivity) on a CD media. Of course, this means that you'll only have a limited amount of video per CD (around 15 minutes of DVD quality video), but may be perfect for your DVD trailer collection or DVD music videos. You can also choose to downgrade the quality by decreasing the resolution/bitrate, and hence increase the amount of video per CD. And with increasing popularity, some new standalone DVD players will also now support this format (please refer to the "How to playback MiniDVDs" section for more information).


      STATS

      Below are some useful statistics :
      • Resolution : PAL - 720x576 ; NTSC - 720x480
      • Bitrate : 650 MB stores up to 15-20 minutes
      • Quality : VIDEO - DVD quality ; AUDIO - DVD quality (Dolby Digital AC3)
