> In case anyone missed it Warner announced it was going strictly to Blu Ray a few days ago. It was the last major studio to make a decision and it get Blu Ray a big boost.

Heh we were discussing this at work just a couple hours ago.

> The rest is still unconfirmed rumors but it sounds like a lot of the other major studios left with HD-DVD may want to switch.

They have more memory capacity than the HD-DVD's but I think they're a little more expensive to produce. Eventually I'm sure like all electronics they'll start getting cheaper to produce and become more affordable. I can wait. I'm in no hurry to buy one. My standard DVD player works for me. \:\)

Ok on to my dumb question. The Blu-Ray discs are about 25 GB right? Does that I can put 25 GB of movie files on one disc or is it still going to be about 2+ hours of video that the disc can contain? If a disc could contain 25 GB of video I would be impressed.

Single layer is 25GB, dual layer is 50GB.

As for what the disks can hold, they can hold 25GB (or 50) of data, in whatever format it comes, be it a few hours of video at 1080p resolution at 40 Mbps, plus audio tracks with several channels, or 25GB (or 50) worth of data files in any formats. It's just like a DVD, only with a lot more room for storage.
