What does DVDRip/BDRip/BRrip/HDRip mean and comparing the quality difference between HDRip vs 1080P vs DVDRip vs BDRip or BRRip?

Ripping is the process of copying video, audio and subtitle content from 

removable media like DVD. Through compression and other approaches such 

as re-encode and others, the content will be recombined into a new multimedia 

file. This new multimedia file is called DVDrip.

Normally, DVDrip is composed of multimedia files(such as AVI format files 

and subtitle files). 

Here is an example: Batman.v.Superman.Dawn.of.Justice.2016.THEATRICAL.DVDRip.x264.AC3-iFT

HDRIP=HD-DVD Rip, the quality of HDRIP is better than DVDRip.

eg. Zootopia 2016 1080p HDRip x264 AC3-JYK

BDRip = BRRip = Blue-ray Disc Rip, it ensures better quality than HDRIP

eg. Batman.v.Superman.Dawn.of.Justice.(2016).EXTENDED.iNT.BDRip.720p.AC3.X264-TLF

Many people are wondering how’s the visual effect and quality of DVDRip, HDRip, 

BRRip or BDRip while comparing with 1080p.

First, there is conceptual confusion about the comparsion. DVDRip,HDRip,BRRip or 

BDRip are actually the form or name of video files, and they did not express any 

meaning of the resolution. 

1080p is one of the factors that judge the resolution of videos, but there are 

other factors available, and they play decisive roles in video’s resolution. 

Even two videos are 1080p, they may come with different resolutions/qualities 

because of different decisive factors such as re-encode, bit rate, frame rate, 

original source and etc.

So, if we want to compare the quality of DVDRip, HDRip, BRRip or BDRip and 1080p, 

we need to set some preconditions. 

According to the resolution, BDRip can be divided into 720p and 1080p. If they have 

same original source (blue-ray), encode as well as bit rate, BDRip 1080p offers 

better quality than BDRip 720p.

If the original source is DVD, videos can also be divided into 720p and 1080p based 

on the resolution. In the case of same original (blue-ray), same encode (H.264) 

and same bit rate, the comparison results of quality are as follows:

HDRip 1080p > DVDRip 1080p

HDRip720p > DVDRip 720P

What are the differences between two videos having same encode & bit rate, but 

different original source & resolution? Normally, 

BDRip 1080p > HDRip 1080p > DVDRip 1080P

BDRip 720p > HDRip 720p > DVDRip 720p

In addition to the original source, different encode and different bit rate will 

have big influences in video’s quality.

Encode selection: H.265 = HEVC =VP 9 > H.264 > DivX > XViD

Bit rate selection

For 1080p, we suggest you choose 10M and above (above 10,000kbps).

For 720p, we suggest you choose above 4,000 or 4M kbps and above.

For example,


Date ...............: October 1 2013

Runtime ............: 2:05:15

Size ...............: 4.09 GB

Video ..............: 1920x8104

Bitrate ............: 4139 kbps (H264 High@L4.0)

Audio 1.............: English DD5.1 Ch 384 kbps

Audio 2.............: Spanish AAC 2.0 Ch 160 kbps

Source .............: iTunes (US)


RELEASE DATE..............: 2013-10-11

RELEASE SIZE..............: 11 GiB

SOURCE....................: 1080p Blu-ray AVC DTS-HD MA 5.1-HDClub

RUNTIME...................: 2h:05m:01s

VIDEO CODEC...............: x264 @ 11021 Kbps

RESOLUTION................: 1920x816


FRAME RATE................: 23.976M fps

AUDiO CODEC...............: English DTS 5.1 @ 1509 Kbps

AUDiO CODEC...............: English AAC 2.0 @ 60 Kbps (Commentary)

You can see, two 1080p videos generate different video volumes in the condition 

of different original sources and different bit rates. As the result, you can 

make your choice based on these factors when you download videos.
