DVD-Video is a consumer video format used to store digital video on DVD discs, and is currently the dominant consumer
video format in Canada, Europe and Australia. Discs using the DVD-Video specification require a DVD drive and a MPEG-2
decoder (e.g., a DVD player, or a DVD computer drive with a software DVD player).
Commercial DVD movies are encoded using a combination of MPEG-2 compressed video and audio of varying
formats (often multi-channel formats as described below). Typically, data rate for DVD movies range from 3 Mbit/s to
9.5 Mbit/s, and the bit rate is usually adaptive.
The DVD-Video specification was created by DVD Forum and can be obtained from DVD Format/Logo Licensing Corporation
for a fee of $5000. The specification is not publicly available, because every subscriber must sign a non-disclosure agreement.
