Technology is developing in an amazing speed. Something that was so popular across the world could become obsolete very fast, even before we start to realize it. As for the media industry, many people believe that DVD, which was so popular in the late 20th century, has already become obsolete, and will disappear from our lives very soon. But other people still think that in the digital world, DVDs still has a role to play that nothing can replace. In my opinion, I think that it is too early to say that DVDs are out dated, and it's not an obsolete behavior that you buy a DVD disc or burn your own DVD disc. Why do I think that? Well, let me explain to you, see if you agree with me.
Part 1: Are DVDs becoming obsolete?
There are reasons for people to believe that DVDs are becoming obsolete. In the recent years, due to the emergence of convenient network video streaming services, smart phones, Blu-rays and the proliferation of pirated downloads, not many people want to buy DVDs to watch films, and the DVD stores are become less than before. But, are DVD really becoming obsolete?
Actually, if you pay some attention, you will find that many people still favor DVDs. It is obvious to tell from the purchase records from Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Best Buy or other shopping sites. But why? Aren't DVDs supposed to be exiled by online streaming or other forms of media? Well, the fact is, compared with the online streaming, physical DVD disc still has its own unique advantages. There are a lot of movies that are difficult to find on the Internet or streaming services, and they don't have collective values like physical DVD discs do.
According to a report released by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLC, revenues from home electronic video services (such as streaming video services and video-on-demand services) will exceed revenues from all DVD and Blu-ray sales and rentals. By contrast, the turnover of movie theater tickets and electronic streaming media services will expect to grow. So, are DVDs dead? Absolutely not. Despite the progress of technology, it is inevitable that new technology continually replaces old one, but that day for DVDs has not arrived just yet.
Part 2: How do people use DVD these days?
As we can see, there are still a lot of people who like to buy DVDs. But why? Why do they still buy DVD discs when online streaming service and smartphones are so popular nowadays? Especially when you can acquire almost any movie online from some good movie download sites? Well actually, people use DVD in various ways. First of all, of course, some old-fashioned people like to buy DVDs and play movies on their DVD player, because after all, playing DVD on a DVD player and watch it from TV, which has a bigger screen than a smart phone or a computer, is still quite enjoyable. Second, more people buy DVDs because they like to collect DVD copies of their favorite movies. These people buy DVD's but they don't necessarily want to watch them, they just like the movie and want to have a copy of their own. Third, there are quite many people who buy blank DVD discs, just to burn their own family videos or homemade movies to the disc. They are normally DIY fans and would like to preserve their work or good memories in the good way, and DVDs are almost perfect for them to do so.
Part 3: How to burn movie to a DVD?
Among all these various things that people used DVDs to do, one of the most interesting thing is burning your own videos or family footage on the disc. More and more people like to do this because saving their work or family videos on s computer is considered not safe and not permanent enough. However, saving video footage on a DVD disc can allow you to preserve them for a longer time. So, how can we burn our video or movies onto a blank DVD disc?
