The description should explain most of it. How many hours of footage can be stored on a DVD? In case you want me to be more specific, I'm talking about the DVDs made for use in a typical DVD player from the early 2000s to today.

It is less about hours and more about video quality. The higher the quality the less time you'll be able to fit.

A "normal" DVD holds 4.7 gig worth of data so depending on the size of the files you are trying to burn to it will dictate how long of a video you can put there.

So it depends on Video Quality, eh? Then let's use one Quality as an example: How many hours will be available if the Video Quality is 720p? That's a common quality for films & TV Shows on DVD, right?

TouchMaster97 : if you are using 720p on a regular DVD you likely will get an hour or less on to it. 720p is pretty high quality to try to put onto a regular DVD.

Unfortunately the current video quality is much higher than what regular DVD's can handle. 720p and 1080p are better off going on to Blueray than on to a DVD player. I think DVD quality is more like 360p or 480p.

Also, I'm not sure if DVD's can even handle proper 720p resolution video.

Then what about 480p? If 720p is not a normal quality for DVD, then how much can the disk fit if the quality was lower?

You're looking at about 2 hours of video depending on how compressed the video is. You might be able to get a bit more or less if your quality varies but you're looking at 2 hours at the most.

Consider movies from 10-15 years ago and if they lasted more than 2.5 hours you would get 2 disks for the movie instead of one. Maybe you're too young to remember those days.

If you have dual layer DVD's (which hold around 8.5 gig) you can double the amount of time but not sacrifice quality so that might be a better option if you're hoping for more than 2 hours.

I actually grew up with DVDs, although a bit later. I believe I was around 9 when I started watching films on DVD.

I do have to say: The dual layer DVD sounds nice. Can you tell me more about it?

Dual layer DVD's are simply a higher capacity DVD. They are a bit more expensive obviously but should be available at any store that sells the regular ones.

I don't think you have to do anything special either to use these compared to the regular DVD's. Just higher capacity is all.
