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: 


Let me show you the quality of this movie file looks like,

 dvdrip of Batman.v.Superman.Dawn.of.Justice.2016 movie picture.png

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

eg. Zootopia 2016 1080p HDRip x264 AC3-JYK


Picture below shows the quality of this movie file,

HDrip of Batman.v.Superman.Dawn.of.Justice.2016 movie screenshots.jpg

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

eg. Batman.v.Superman.Dawn.of.Justice.(2016).EXTENDED.iNT.BDRip.1080p.AC3.X264-TLF

Now you can compare the quality difference among BDrip,HDrip and DVDrip through the picture 



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 selections

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)

As 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.
