Well Fred, I'm using Freemake. I believe I specified that to you somewhere. Gee, if you use Freemake; depending on the video, you can download in the format which Freemake provides for that video. This is contingent upon the quality of the video uploaded. You make mention of MP4 360, but MP4 is also 720P, which I download in. I was just wondering that if I download in higher quality, such as 1080P HD, will this be better in terms of converting to a DVD, rather than, let's say 360P? Your thoughts.

It's no bother at all. Based on the choices above, I would download the MP4-720P file, assuming you have a regular square shaped TV and not a wide screen. I don't like the FLV format since it's usually highly compressed and low quality. Use it as your last choice if possible.

If you download the HD 1080P file, it has to be scaled down quite a bit in size which can actually add to quality loss.

I think you were replying to Ignatzatsonic's post on the previous page.

Well, tried using the alternate key and lost my reply. Anyways Fred thank you again. To re-enter my semi-thesis again. Your points are very valid, as they have reaffirmed my theory. The compression you speak of, as well as the scaling to the formats you have cited are actually correct. I tried 1080P to DVD and noticed some compression loss on a regular TV; (4:3) However, not too bad. I believe you are correct in stating that the 720P is better quality. You know, Cox cable doesn't even put out over 800P, but they sat they are still working on it. Only Fios has the 1080P, which we do not have. We're comfortable with 720P, and 480P is fine also. There is a great deal of pixilation on HD TV's which I don't care for.
Let me aggravate you again Fred. Would it make a difference as to which TV you played the 720P or the 1080P as far as viewing, i.e. (quality)? We have both HD and regular TV. HD also provides for a 4:3 format should you select this field. Some HD tv's give you like 5 options for picture settings.
I don't know "Ignatzatsonic's) nor of his post. I did not post anything to his post. Anyways Fred, what do you think of Freemake. It's very robust. If you take a look at it, Freemake provides various format conversions. You can also take content off a DVD and convert to Video_TS files. Naturally, these are not copyrighted. A reply at your convenience is appreciated.
I will not be using the alternate key again. Maybe too many numbers entered.

Supplementary: Fred, sorry to be using legal terms in my questions. I guess by writing so many court documents, I'm always thinking within the framework of the legal system.
Irrespective of this, the whole matter of our discussion, video formats, etc., really mean nothing. In reality this is just considered play time. Thanks Fred.

The short answer for 1080 vs 720 resolution is, you should create your video with target display in mind. The numbers all refer to the amount of pixels that can be displayed on your TV. Most 4:3 aspect ratio TV's can only display around 500 pixels. That means they'll never be able to benefit from a higher resolution video like HD 1080. Although, most TVs can compensate for how the picture is displayed.

If you wanted to create a video that you'll watch on a wide screen HD TV, you'll notice better quality when your source video is also in HD. Blue Ray DVDs are an example.

If you go to channel 1000 and up on Cox, you'll see the HD channels in 1080p. Flip back and forth between channel 10 and 1010 on an HD TV and that's where the quality difference is. If you get pixelation while watching TV, that's Cox's signal. Usually it's the data coming in on Cox's line which isn't getting to your tv fast enough.

I've never used Freemake so can't really comment on it. There are a lot of similar programs which work pretty well. Haha, no problem on the legal references. I've done a bit of studying Title 17 of the USC.

Well Fred, it's nice to identify commonality. My forte is not in the copyright arena. We only have like 77 Cox channels, so I no not anything of those higher end channels. I believe the 'scale down' issue is what you are referring to, or the "pulldown", which some claim to be useless. I thought that was the case, "To create the video with the target display", as you make mention of, but wasn't sure. Thanks for everything Fred and if I can be of any assistance to you in the future, please feel free to contact me.
