Question File sizes and movie run time ?

hi everyone, does anyone know why a one hour run time on a movie downloaded from e-mule is circa 500MB. ish. where as a one hour movie taken from a dvd onto your hard drive can be as high as 2GB. ?

is it because people have shrunk the files (compressed) to make them download quicker ? are some downloaders put off by the larger file sizes ?

any replies much appreciated, iam new to this technology. moruman.

EMule transmits data in zlib-compressed form to save bandwidth

Hi not using e-mule at the moment but perhaps someone else could second this?

E-Mule protocol extension is to support large files (> 4GB). Maximum supported file size is 512 GB - 1 byte (549,755,813,887 bytes). So you wouldn't have a problem with a 1 hr movie
