Differences in DVD speed
on Dec 9, 2012 at 6:41:35 pm

Hey,

I have a question about the speed of DVD's. Im doing a thesis on the subject of DVDs (Fight Club), and there seems to be a difference between DVDs from various countries. I have the Fight Club DVDs from America, The Netherlands, Germany and China. The ones from America and China are 6 minutes longer than the ones from the Netherlands and Germany. It's not because of deleted scenes. When I play them together, e.g. Dutch and American version, and synchronize them exactly right, the American gets further and further behind. I can only think of a difference between the frames per second or region code differences, but I have no idea if this really is the issue. Can someone explain this? (This issue is not part of the thesis btw, I'm just curious why this is) Thanks!

It's the usual way to speed up films from 24 to 25 fps for PAL countries.
It's the most comfortable way & it archives best picture quality.

But why is the Chinese version also longer? I thought they use PAL also.

You can use a free tool called IFO Edit to look at the VOB Files to determine what frame rate they are.
