DVD File Structures

view of DVD file structureThe process of sharing DVD's is the same as it is for audio files (mp3) or other video files (avi, wmv, quicktime) - with one exception. Files intended for playback on a PC usually are one file = one piece of content.

With DVD's there are a whole bunch of files that make up the content (per chapter, per menu, and also one for audio).

After you have downloaded them, you get a pile o' stuff that will probably look unfamiliar. Don't be confused if you see a bunch of file types that look like the picture shown. Once you have them just copy as is onto a blank DVD disk. After that, just put it in your DVD player!! Here are a couple other helpful links:

CRV Website Traffic

Here's a look at website traffic to a handful of VC funds - measured by Alexa. The big increase in CRV's traffic was from our announcement of Quickstart. Sequoia's spike is from their relaunch in October of their website. To see it clearly, just click on it. James Hong of also told me that if you press ctrl +F5 while reading this note OR looking at the enlarged page, it will update itself - it works!!.
