    HD and Blu Ray?

    Bit of an issue going on with me and my bro. Thing is i mention to him that i bought the odd blu ray recently etc but he says why buy when just download it in HD. But thing is i know you can download stuff in HD but isnt it different from Blu Ray quality or am i making a tit of myself with bro and just tap out and say hes right. He says hes downloading in HD which is Blu ray as he stated but i could have sworn it wasnt.

    If it was blu ray how can he watch it without a blu ray player?

    So basically is something in HD different than actual blu ray itself and if so what?
    Please say im right lol

    Blu Ray is the highest quality HD. Downloads can be anywhere from poor quality HD to full Bluray quality. In most case people download heavily compressed HD which can still look great but it's still not Bluray quality.

    its also generally ileagal too.
    yeah yeah I know "everyone does it" but if you made a film, would you like it if people around the world were downloading it, watching it and then not paying for a copy?

    Whatever he was downloading he said it was 10gb. so for being that is it likely it will be blu ray quality u think?

    Bluray usually between 20GB and 40GB, occasionally can be 50GB. It does follow the law of diminishing returns though with regards to quality.

    Am sorry but if you were offerred higher pay in your job, you wouldnt take it?
    so if you get paid a lot, it doesnt matter if people steal from you?
    not everyone in the film or music industry is on a massive wage y'know. and if they are, what business is it of yours to steal from them?

    so could a homeless or less well off person come and steal from you, cos the money you earn is more than them?
    would that be OK?

    but its OK cos being a musician or actor isnt a real job is it?
    basterds, earning tons of money. utter scum.
