Wittyguy (95) To the "huhs" above, I think the poll is asking what you do if you have old pics/vids that size out at, say, 900x600 pixels for pics and say 640 for vids. They looked great on your old 14" crt monitor but on your flashy 24" flat screen they look washed out and pixelated if viewed in full screen mode. Recently I have replaced some pics and vids but mostly I just dump them in favor of new stuff.

In fairness to Drooler (who submitted the poll) the question was re-worded from his original submission. He had it as two statements followed by a question. That may have made his meaning a little more clear ... though I got it right away. However, as we prefer our poll questions to be, well, a single question ... it was reworded.

Drooler (220) Wittyguy and Khan understood the question. Thanks for the clarifications for those who did not.

RagingBuddhist (65) I think another way to put it is, do your older, low resolution videos look crappier on larger screens? And, what do you do with those files?

As much as I now go for the highest resolution files I can find, I come from what I like to call the VHS era. The resolutions weren't great back in the day but they were definitely watchable. I guess that's carried through to today for me. I've deleted very few videos over the years due to poor resolution. When I do play an early video and it doesn't look good full screen, I drop the player size 'til it looks decent enough to watch.

pat362 (369) I would watch them in a smaller window if that were the case but I do not have such a huge screen that I currently need to do that.

turboshaft (24) I prefer things full screen, so if the offending photo/vid doesn't pass this test reasonably well then it's straight to the trash bin.

I have plenty of old 640x480 vids that besides being smaller aren't unwatchable, and it's not like the content was ever secretly shot on Imax or something. But I was recently going through stuff I had downloaded from VideosZ and eventually I just started deleting whole folders; the content was just not worth the space.

Capn (28) If a jpg is sharp at full screen that is fine for me. Whilst I can appreciate there are those who regard bigger is better in everything, I still never bother downloading the largest size jpgs as I am not someone who feels the need to zoom in to the finest detail.

Cap'n.

Drooler (220) Most of the stuff I have, even from 12 years ago, I was pretty picky about choosing. Ohh ... another thing: I paid for it.

I'll usually just view it in a smaller screen.

nineinch (8) It depends on how much space they take up. I can keep dozens of older videos for the size of one 1080p HD. For that reason I usually just go for 720p. I even go for 540p in some cases. I would rather delete a few big new files than some of the older gems. I play the older smaller videos in 2x size, because they retain some of the clarity while my poor eyes appreciate the larger size.
