That's more or less a limitation of your hardware though. I think I've had 5.1 on my computer for a decade, and I would not consider myself a tech guy at all. That's not even the point though really. The man said itunes movies couldn't be watched on his tv without apple tv and that's just not true at all.

I don't have a laptop. Whine, whine, boo hoo, first world problems.

Otherwise you can insert you hand up the file's wazoo and remove the DRM.
Sounds dirty. Should I wear a glove?

I'm not going to say how to do that other than it's as simple as clicking a button. Once you do that, the file is a just a regular old mp4 with which you can do as you please.
PM me.

re: Blu-ray and DVD sales - #2, but we try harder

Here is a chart of the YoY (year-over-year) differential between Blu-ray and DVD. The 13 week moving average is shown.

For example, if in a given week, Blu-ray was up 10% and DVD was down 5%, then the differential for that week is 15%. The average for that week and the prior 12 weeks is taken for each data point in the chart.

the chart covers the last 3 years, from 2013 to the present.

Notice that for an extended period of time (around a year), Blu-ray and DVD were nearly equal in YoY percentage (difference of 5% or less), but has spiked up in favor of Blu-ray in the last 20 weeks or so.

It looks like DVD's support is getting chipped away in the market.

re: Blu-ray and DVD sales - #2, but we try harder

Any information about # of releases on either format? It used to be DVD was getting at least 4x as many releases in a week vs blu-ray and often it was more like 7 or 8. Are the weekly releases still that lopsided?

How is Blu-ray up so much every week this year? Not complaining of course, it just seems odd.

Well box office power is up and there is a stronger carry-over from last year. Q4 2014 was very weak (for being Q4).

Also I suspect that HMM may have altered how their calculations a little to give more to Blu-ray and less to DVD. Otherwise DVD would be vastly under performing (it should have been benefiting from high BO power too) compared to Blu-ray, as compared to earlier last year and the year before that.

According to the dvdandblurayreleasereport, DVD had 10,017 releases last year (down 8.14%), while Blu-ray had 2,134 (up 3.9%). So DVD still releases well over 4x as many as Blu-ray.

It is curious that blu-ray sales are up every week even when there isn't a big release.

Could someone like Redbox be pushing blu-ray numbers up?

I just assume the studios are playing games with SKU designations

There doesn't have to be a big release. Just a better box office week than the week last year it's being compared to.

Each of the last seven weeks were up YoY box office power-wise (look at the last two columns in the chart above).

This is a few weeks behind, but it looks like Star Wars is part of it. Five separate listings in the top 20.

Plus a couple of animated titles (new and old).

^^ Good point. I'm sure that has a lot to do with it.

re: Blu-ray and DVD sales - #2, but we try harder

The Only BR and DVD (Sales Totaled together for the 2015 year) $$$ amount that is over $100 Million Dollars in Sales is -

Jurassic World (2015)

Sales have really dropped off in the DVD department big time.

2015 Top 10 DVD Sales numbers = 31,843,320 (for $495,727,484)
2014 Top 10 DVD Sales numbers = 19,608,241 (for $291,958,351)

re: Blu-ray and DVD sales - #2, but we try harder

Looking back at the Top 20 charts, it looks like it was a combination of 3 factors, as to why Blu-ray has suddenly surged (since September of last year).

1) Q4 was very strong compared to the year before. Especially in regards to mega-blockbusters, which have a higher than normal Blu-ray share. Things started kicking off during Furious 7 week. Cinderella was released that week too. Both had at least a 60% share.

2) Aladdin was near the top of the charts for several weeks and it was a Blu-ray exclusive, so that's 100% share for Blu-ray right there.

3) And right when Aladdins sales started to fade, the Star Wars craze started in December with those expensive (and exclusive to Blu-ray) box sets in the top 20 (and even now they still are).

So all of those factors favor Blu-ray rising and DVD not rising.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I thought 2015 was a really weak year for releases. A lot of what I wanted didn't start coming out until late Q3/Q4.

How do they count BD/DVD combo set sales?
