T2 High-Def.

ok..i just got this question when think about T2 High Def file in the upcoming discs.
it's High-def file. it's around 3G. it can be played with WMP9.0. now i got WMP9.0. i got ATi 9700Pro. i got WinXP Pro. i even got P4 HT.
what about i want to make this kind of high-def file myself? then i can even write this high-def file onto regular dvd blank disc. is it possible? does it need special software to encode the file? (i have all necessary software to write regular dvd.)

I am pretty sure Windows Media encoder 9 can encode this format of high-def. I am not sure if you will be able to burn it to a format that will play at the level it was originally encoded at ie: current dvd players only do 480P versions of high-def not the version that comes with the new T2 dvd set. Also, I am not so sure how you will be able to copy it from the disc itself, it might not be a seperate video file that is easily extractable, even with all the dvd copying tools. when we get this disc, I guess we will find out.

cheers.

I'm not sure what your question is. Do you mean you want to downconvert the HD version to standard definition DVD?

Or do you want to burn the HD version to a DVD-R so you can play it on your television?

There is no HD standard for DVD video yet, so there's no high-def format to convert the video stream to so that you could play it on a standard DVD player. 720x480 is the best you can do on a stand-alone player, no matter what resolution your screen is.

The new T2 MP9 transfer looks great on a good LCD monitor though, doesn't it?

Or don't you all have it yet?

sorry for confusion.
i just want to burn high-def file on to regular disc, to give friend who can play it on their computer, or keep it in my hard disk.
and maybe i can borrow D-VHS tapes from my friend and copy it to high-def file and save it on my hard-disk.
isn't it nice?
if WMp9.0 encoder can handle this task. that not too difficult, isn't it?

Ah, I see.

I don't know if that'll work - most files won't play from a disc with a different ID than the original - it's a copy protection thing.

You'd need a way to rip the MP9 stream and removing the Microsoft CP on it - it's tricky, but of course doable. There's no copy protection scheme yet that hasn't been (or can't be) broken.

It's a non-trivial conversion, though. I doubt (although I haven't tried it) that copying the file(s) will work.

Let us know if you have any success.

Me again - it looks like the HD version is encoded in a VOB - I don't know how you'd extract it using a deCSS tool, though, as it's not a standard video stream. You'd wind up with garbage.

I'm sure as these Artisan discs are released someone clever will offer a way to extract the files. It's simply a matter of time.

For a while I wasn't sure how much this conversation was getting into the illegal aspects of violating DMCA. But after a post mentioning using "a deCSS tool" I was no longer unsure.

We have strict rules about discussing violating copyright laws. I hope this won't be repeated.
