Their HD-Quality looks bad

For some time now Videobox also delivers some updates as "HD", being 720p resolution. While those videos really contain that resolution, they actually look quite blurred and bad compared to the usual 720p quality i know. Making me wonder, if they maybe just create this HD from a DVD source and just upscale it.

I can't recommend anyone who looks for HD videos to join. If you are satisfied with DVD quality though, this site is just fine.

messmer (137) Some of their HD videos are indeed below par, whowho, but I also saved quite a few to my hard drive that were of excellent quality. Then you also have the in-betweens like in today's HD update where it is indeed 720p with a good bitrate but only in 4:3 format. As to the regular DVDs I don't even bother downloading most of them any more because I find many too blurry in full screen.

rearadmiral (384) I definitely agree - downloading the HD isn't any realy advantage over the next lower resolution. I don't have any technical knowledge to offer a suggestion as to why, but it does seem odd that some sites have lower resolutions that look better than higher resolution files on another site.

For me this is only true in SOME scenes, rearadmiral and I am a stickler for a clear and sharp picture. I know that you are a lover of wmv files so I'll ask have you ever tried downloading a video in mp4 format? Not only is the file half the size of an wmv one but, to my eyes, is often of higher quality.

I've tried mp4s and I agree with you on their quality. My beef with that format is that I really don't like the players. I've tried Quicktime and VLC and I don't like either of those. But with wmv HD getting more rare, I suspect I'll have to jump ship soon...

Try downloading the K-Lite Codec Pack, rearadmiral. This package contains not only all the codecs you will ever need but also a great player. It's the old Windows Player, now called Media Player Classic, but don't let the name fool you. It has everything you might want. It even has the capacity to resize a messed up video (ctrl keypad) if your source got the dimensions wrong. I use VLC at times but only because of its capacity to sharpen a picture, other than that I use the Media Player Classic as my default player. It pauses and resumes when you click on the picture of the video, the volume can be adjusted through your mouse scroll button. What's not to like? I would really recommend it highly.
