Can you convert a DVD to Blu-Ray?
While standard DVDs are unable to carry the same high definition video that commercially available Blu-Ray discs can, they can still be converted to be read on a Blu-Ray disc. In addition, one Blu-Ray disc can hold the contents of several DVDs.
Is it worth replacing DVDs with Blu-Ray?
Keep in mind that Blu-rays aren’t necessarily superior to DVDs. Some Blu-rays are essentially upconverted DVDs or are poorly mastered and don’t offer any upgrade in picture quality. Blu-rays also don’t always have all the special features that were on earlier DVDs.
Will DVDs and blu-rays become obsolete?
DVDs and Blu-ray discs will be replaced by streaming services. Consumers head to streaming services to watch movies, and the addition of Disney+ to the mix will only make DVDs and Blu-Ray discs even less of a necessity.
Is there a disc better than Blu-Ray?
A DVD is a standard definition device. You won’t get high-definition movie viewing on your DVD, just 480 SD. On the other hand, Blu-Ray is made for HD, and you’ll get the best picture possible, with 1080 HD capability for your Blu-Ray movies. So if you are looking for a quality picture, Blue Ray is the clear winner.
How do I digitize my Blu Ray?
