Thanks for a terrific 2 years everyone. I'm releasing this video as part of the celebration, it was one of the first videos I ever made almost 2 years ago so please be kind. It profiles the fight between HD DVDs and Blu-rays in their attempt to become the primary media format.

What is this HD DVD you are talking about?
Poor Man Games
It was war again that's why I didn't buy them I got Reg DvD movies in till there was a winner even though I owned a PS3
Gates
DVD is still the medium yea right I rather have the higher res picture then crap dvd.
Michael Gmirkin
But the bigger question:

A decade or two on, why are studios still even producing regular DVDs, rather than emphasizing going to Blu-ray only, or combo packs.

Studios should simply stop making DVDs and transition to Blu & 4K, and phase out DVD-only players.
Carlo Hans
But HD-DVD does not exist at least a 10 years ...
Stanley Reynolds
The Blu-ray spec allows for up to 100GB per disc. I've never seen any with more than 50GB however. This extra capacity is another nail in HD DVD's coffin.
Reggie Murphy
I sure did. Xbox add on and a stand alone player

And now bit by bit blue ray and dvd are going to die to streaming even the PS5 most likely wont be using a physical media.
Elwood Brown
You have enlightened me on HD DVD but there was a medium we had in New York state that makes this whole video a mind blow. Blu ray was hd dvd and both players would play the disc. I don't know if it the result from the end of the media war but there was no separation it was always a blu day hd dvd disc and a blue ray hd dvd player both from Toshiba and any other brand. Those were not the only players out, Alex is another.
Carlos Gomez
PS4 was released in November 2013 in North America

My father bought an HD player and thanks to it we managed to get a lot of HD disks for like 3 bucks. Kept saying how they were suppose to look way better than Blu-ray’s.
The player was annoying as hell. Basically if you didn’t have the remote you were fucked.
Mason Wengert
I honestly cant tell the difference between DVD and blu-ray😂 thats why i just keep buying DVDs

First time hearing about the HD-DVD format and I'm 33 y/o.

Sony: now the 6 infinity studios are mine, half of the format world will be decimated (I wonder how many people have already made this joke)
Orbus G
In fairness to standard dvd format, by the time bluray was coming around and then after most dvd releases were on dual layer dvds with almost nine gigabytes of space on it.
Even if it costs publishers a bit more per dvd, demand for extra features was increasing and nobody liked dual sided dvds or movies split across two discs because a movie was longer than 90 minutes. And yep, I don't mind sticking to dvds. My ps2 can still play them and so can our ps3. The price for some of the bluray anime boxsets are unbelievable.

I never owned many DVDs and no Blu-rays, always went digital, but this was still really interesting. Wondering how much longer Blu-ray will last

Disney - Bigger Than You Know HD DVD vs. Blu-ray 1 day ago   10:20

Disney just bought a bunch of assets from Fox in a $71 billion deal. This marks their largest acquisition in a long line of large acquisitions. This video talks about that deal, looks at some of their significant acquisitions from the past 25 years, and examines how big Disney currently is. My guess is that it's bigger than you know.
