We are spoilt by HD, and fullHD of a lot of the Kodaks etc at 1080p.

The humble 640x480 VGA actually is still good enough for anything destined for DVD.

What? Isn't DVD quality supposed to be the "best" quality source?

Well, before HDTV and Blu-ray it was.....

DVD Video (NTSC) spec (Wikipedia link) is only 720x480!!!!
so most of the videos at 480p are good enough for anything aimed for DVD -
especially widescreen 480p - that would be WVGA like on the Kodaks of 848x480

Of course HD 720p or 1080p does no harm, but there is very little, if any, visible improvement -
since they have to be reduced to 720x480......
