Music streaming revenue is starting to level off, meaning the market is starting to get saturated. Nevertheless, the amount of revenue growth in streaming this year outstripped the entire revenue generated by CDs.

Cracking the DIVX encryption would be completely pointless now unless someone wanted to do it as a challenge. Actually, I'm sort of surprised nobody has done it yet just for shitz-n-giggles.

You'd need to find an actual DIXV disc, though. Once DIVX died, they became useless.

Got curious, and there are some DIVX discs up on eBay right now. Looked at a few on the listings. One of them is "guaranteed to play." Someone else is asking $92 for a copy of Armageddon. Curiously enough, none of the listings for the discs I saw had a disclaimer that they were no longer playable without the DIXV infrastructure.

Disney may be getting back into disc based releases.

The labels drastically increased CD pricing and made some very questionable business decisions regarding expensive box sets, which had propped up sales for the past few years. Another problem is legacy acts have released most everything multiple times in their catalog, so there is little left to explore outside of Hi-Rez releases.

That's interesting. That makes it sound like it's possible they may try bringing some streaming content to home video, instead of keeping it exclusive to Disney+

My goodness, SACD and DVD-A are so small they lumped them in with CD singles, cassettes, and vinyl singles. 400K total units compared with CD/LP/EP's 75 Million.

Yeah, even though I hardly buy this stuff anymore, there's a couple D+ shows I'd definitely buy on blu-ray, like Andor and maybe a couple Marvel shows.

I would be all over a 4K set of the complete Andor series and Rogue One, especially if they tweak the deepfakes of Leia and Tarkin in R1.

Tangentially, this was eventually done for sacd long after the few remaining record stores stopped carrying sacd and dvd-audio titles. Some hardcore hackers figured out how to do it on a sony playstation 3.

Surprised puss in boots couldn’t get blu-ray in the green considering how well it did in the box office. Last year the best selling blu-ray this week was Belfast, a tiny box office movie, so it’s not like puss has a tough year on year compare.

I think it just illustrates how much physical media has declined - even in just the last year.

The last 17 charts posted have had YOY revenue declines for total discs, DVD and Blu-Ray.

I think Avatar 2 will be the first release to break this red streak.
