Re: MKV

Broseph, broseph, broseph, you are only partial right. Standard DVD resolution for NTSC is 720 (or 704) by 480. PAL is 720 (or 704) by 576.

Re: MKV

Is there a reason some groups have switched over to using MKV? Its hard to convert to an avi to burn on a DVD. File size and download speed are the most obvious reasons. But there are more: Standard DVD resolution is 704x480. AVI does not support anamorphic video. That's why all the "standard resol...

Whether there are 2 or 27 or 270 peers doesn't make a difference. The average download speed for each peer will be the sum of all upload speeds divided by the number of downloaders. For example, if each peer uploads at 50 KB/s, everyone will download at 50 KB/s too. The number of peers is irrelevant.
