What does 1080p/hdrip/x264/ac3 of a movie mean and comparing of a 720p and 1080p moive video quality when both two videos with the same storage space?

When you want to download a movie or video and you search it in a site's searchbox and 

there comes up lot's of files with different kinds of formats which you don't understand, 

for example like these:

Zootopia 2016 1080p HDRip x264 AC3 JYK 

Zootopia 2016 FRENCH BDRip XviD EXTREME avi

Zootopia 2016 720p HD TC x264 AC3 Exclusive CPG

Zootopia 2016 MULTi 1080p BluRay x264 VENUE mkv

Captain America Civil War 2016 RUS HD TC 

Captain America Civil War 2016 720p HC HDRip x264 AAC YIFI

The Conjuring 2 2016 HD TS x264 AC3 CPG

I'll expalin them in different species.

1,Video Resolution or Video Quality       

SD—480P                :720x480 

HD—720P                :1280×720 

FHD—1080P            :1920x1080 

2K                              :2048×1080 

UHD(Ultra HD)—4K :3840×2160 or 4096×2160 

2,Movie source

CAM: stands for camera, the lowest quality.You don't want to watch it unless you'd like 

to watch opacity of a movie with people's laugh background.

Example:The Conjuring 2 2016 English Movies HD Cam XviD AAC New Source with 

Sample ☻rDX☻

and it should be looking like this,

TS : a little better than CAM, no people's noise background.

Example: The Conjuring 2 2016 HD-TS x264 AC3-CPG

TC: way better than TS and CAM in bps,but audio of TC still sounds terrible like TS.

You don't want to watch it, believe me.

Example:The Conjuring 2 2016 Hindi Dual Audio HDTC x264 AAC - Hitman.mkv

This is Conjuring 2 TC version looks like,

DVDSCR: released earlier than DVDRip, normally comes from test version or preview 

version of official DVD.You can watch it anyway if you are in a rush.

Example:House Full 3 (2016) New 1CD DvDscr x264 AAC EthamadEt.MP4


Much better,huh?

DVDRip: Recommend and better than above.Rip is like a way of extract video and 

audio from a disc.But HDRip and BDRip have way better quality than DVDrip,and i 

still hope you be patient. 



Zootopia 2016 1080p HDRip x265 NL Subs.mkv


BluRay:best of the best, and of course it's huge.


Enjoying the blu-ray below,

3,Video Codecs




4,Auido Codecs




5,Container of Format








For understanding video codecs,Audio Codecs and container of format,Recommending 

you read this blog:A Guide to Common Video Formats and Video Encoding

And also one very important factor determine weather the quality of a video is good or 

not is Bit Rate.I don't even need to explain what bit rate is, you'll understand it anyway 

after i put some examples out.

Bluray BD25:       bit rate is 200-250K bps(bits per second)

bluray BD50:       bit rate is 300K bps more or less.

High quality 1080P:  bit rate is 1000K bps more or less.

and one video of high quality 1080p has better quality than BD50 than BD25.

So let's assume that if you want to download one video with 4 different bps in 720p and 

1080p resolutions,there are 720a(20bps), 720b(30bps), 1080a(50bps), 1080b(100bps).

If you request for hight quality of video and you have high capacity of hard drive ,then go 

for 1080p(b).Been a while, you've downloaded toom many videos and your hard drive 

capacity is not enough but you still    want to have high quality of videos,then 720p(b) 

would be your better choice,also 1080p(a) also works too especially if you'd like to play 

videos in big screen.Time by time, you'll find 720p(a) also pretty good,if you not pay 

attention to every single detail on an adult video.
