Strange discoloration on TTT Dvd

I picked up my TTT Dvd today at Wal Mart and was checking the dvd for scratches, when I noticed a faint discoloration, almost like a water stain, on it when viewed in sunshine. Might this cause a problem now or in the future? Is this just something that I just haven't noticed on my other dvds? I haven't played the dvd yet.

Comments?

I have a good number of DVDs that have the same appearance and they played fine and still do.

I had 2 discs with this type of discoloration and they will totally freeze.

I also have others but still work fine so fine. Knock knock.

I've had several discs come out like that. I returned a few of them, and should have returned them all but I never had a chance to. They all played fine, though.

I've had many discs like that. Never had a problem with any of them so far. Make sure you are not seeing a shadow from the artwork on the top of the disc. I've seen that several times and thought for a sec that the disc was messed up. You can actually see through a DVD if you hold it up to the light.

It happens during the cooling process when the discs are made and does not effect the playback of the disc.

Don't worry about it. I have a ton of DVDs like that.
