- What is a CLONED movie?
A Cloned movie is an exact duplicate of the DVD you would get in stores. The menu and movie quality are duplicated to be the same as the manufactured disc. (Please note: Some cloned movies will have a "PLAY" button available on the menu but will not react when you click it. Don't be alarmed, the movie still works, you just need to click a secondary source such as the chapter menu or special features and play the movie through there) back to top
- What is DVDRIP?
DVDRIP means the movie came from a manufactured DVD. The movie has the same quality as the manufactured disc but not the menu or any other features from the original DVD.

- What is Resolution?
The resolution is the dimensions of the movies width x height. Higher resolution number means better quality. Lower resolution causes a movie to be pixelated, or what views consider blurry.
If a movie is 1280 × 720 or higher it's considered high def., which is really good. If a movie is 720 × 480 it's considered okay. Anything lower than 720 × 480 can still be watchable, but the quality may not be the best. (The older the movie, the less chance of it being HD. Remember, television broadcast didn't change over to HD until late 2000s, so movie made before than may originally be standard definition) back to top
