People who say "my 8G movies work but my 12G movies don't" or similar nonsense.

D'oh, a 90 minute (1h30) movie that is 8G is the same bitrate as a 135 minute (2h15) movie that is 12G.

mediainfo is a wonderful tool. People should learn about it, as well as the difference between a container and a codec.

A container is something you put water in. A codec is a brand of camera. Right?Big Grin

A container is where you put your beer. A codec is what you think a container is after drinking the contents of the container.

Edit, grammar correct according to the teacher...

You can still get a point even when you miss the point. Wink

Subject A ) Missed a point.
Subject B ) Made Subject A feel the point (not necessarily the same point could for e.g witty point, sharp point or ding dong point, pointy hat? But not the original point) Rofl

But ya. All valid points. Oo

The most important thing to bear in mind is... "There is no spoon...!"

Also I think you meant "bear in mind", or were you being "bare minded"? Tongue

Rhetorical questions, also make a point...

@teeedubb

I think you misunderstand my earlier comment about "can have and actually have"... not meant as a correction at all, I see why you think it would be now. Doh! Wink
