What's your point? I never claimed Youtube is better quality.

Fact is, Bluray to lossless video is kinda like 96kbps to lossless audio.

Not really. That aliased blue to red contrast is literally the worst sample you can get. It does not happen in nearly any commercial video ever made.
8 bit is not really a problem in blu-ray either, as bitrates are well above where dithering becomes a problem.

Well that's only because lossless video is about 40GB per 20 minutes.

I think you can agree that 240GB for one 1080p movie is beyond reasonable.

If you watch at a proper distance the limitations of Blu-ray are far less noticeable.

That's actually quite reasonable, cinema studios distribute losslessly compressed movies in HDD's to theaters

Blu-rays, much like DVDs, have their write layer sandwiched between two plastic layers.

So as long as you don't attack it with a knife any scratches can be repaired and won't damage the data layer.

One side is 4:4:4.
One side is 4:2:0.

Both sides were compressed to the same size with jpeg (using the appropriate downsampling mode).

Which side is which?

>> No.49405946

Actually chroma subsampling doesn't necessarily mean smaller files.
Often the files are actually bigger and worse looking

The reason 4:2:0 was adopted is because a long time ago digital interfaces (DVI, HDMI) couldn't handle the bandwidth of the decoded video.
Nowadays there's zero reason to use it, other than legacy support.

This may be correct (but usually isn't significant) depending on the content and resolution.
In many cases, the reduction in bandwidth to be compressed means that compression can introduce less artefacts.

Here's the original images.
Right was 4:4:4 for reference.
They are both better than each other if you look in different places. This is because the 4:4:4 doesn't have subsampling artefacts, but the 4:2:0 has less compression artefacts (needing less to store).

If you needed to zoom in to see which was which, you cannot claim to see the difference, ignoring that it was 50/50.

Sony VAIO was a completely separate business unit to Sony Computer Entertainment, who make the PlayStation.

The thing about Sony is that it's really just a loose group of separately run companies, and many of those companies compete with each other.

There was no strategic direction to put BD in everything. The various businesses all go and do their own thing.
