I think you might be mis-interpretting what cprybicki was saying. The DVDs that you make with your computer are different from the DVDs you rent from Blockbuster. Professionally-released DVD movies are not "burned", they’re "pressed", and should last a very long time. DVDs you create with your computer are not as permanent. AVI files are not as compressed as MPEG2 files (which is what you make when you’re making you own movie-DVDs). So AVI files preserve just a little more detail. Of course, if you shoot with a miniDV camcorder, those miniDV tapes can last a LONG time.
Hope this helped, 🙂
