What determines the quality of a given video?

    This is a general discussion.

    How do you determine the quality of a video? Suppose you are given bit rate, bit depth, resolution, encoding etc information. Also note the video is not pixelated. This ensures its not up-scaled. So quality factors will not give false hint.

    As an example I give you media information of two videos. Can you tell which is better/worse? why is it?

    both are good... the quality... in my experience it totally depends on the user... like if you want a low dimension video to be in full screen without much tear... then its bit rate must to high.... or if you already have a hd video then its bit rate may not be too high for no tearing... :) ...

    as for framerates... it determines the number of images in a second... basically 24 is common and for blu ray quality its 60... I'd say something above 23 is fine... cause they you'll not notice the video looking like a book flipping images... and if you want to slow down a video (using any software) then the more frame rate it has the better result you get... :)

    hope it all helps... :A
