DVDRip, HDRip, BRrp, atau CamRip. Apa maksudnya

Ketika mendownload film, anda menemukan istilah-istilah seperti DVDRip, HDRip, BRrp, atau CamRip. Apa maksudnya.

These are basically denoting the source

For eg.
DVDrip means the source of the ripped video file was a DVD.
Similarly, in HDrip the source is HDTV(High Definition) telecasts on your dish tv.
Similarly, BRrip stands for a rip done from a BluRay disc.

Now, the catch is that each source denotes a different quality 
Here BRrip is better than HDrip  is better than DVDrip.

This is one thing. Now coming on to the resolutions
If it says 1080p or 720p then,1080 is of higher resolution/quality than 720p.

Further there are more types of source.
  • CAMrip - Source is cam(era). These are the ones which are shot illegally in the theatres. You will get all the sounds of audience laughing and babies crying in this. This is worst, so download only if you are too impatient to watch the flick.
  • PreDVDrip - Another way to fool people. Its just a camrip but a bit better quality as it has been better ripped and touched.
  • R5/R6 - The R5 is a retail DVD from region 5. Region 5 consists of the Indian subcontinent, most of Africa, North Korea, Russia and Mongolia.These are kind of promotional. They lack better sound and image quality. But they are still watchable and are better. Only problem will be the hard coded foreign language subtitles.
  • Web-DL - This is a movie or TV show downloaded via an online distribution website, such as iTunes. Its quality is better and are quite watchable.

Similarly, there are lots of other formats about which you can read here

One last tip : If the title of movie you are downloading has words HC in it, then it stands for Hard Coded i.e. the movie has hard coded subtitles in it which cant be disabled.

eg. Xyz chronicles (2007) DVDrip HC ENG yaya

  • HC ENG means that the rip has hard coded english subtitles.
  • yaya - its the name of the ripper. It is the person who has ripped the DVD and uploaded it on net. For eg. Some famous ones are axxo, yify, ETRG etc.

PS : Film piracy is a punishable offence. So one should not promote this kind of piracy. Better buy/rent a DVD and then watch. :)
