Re: Why author to Bluray if small enough to fit on dvd5 or dvd9?

Just to be clear, you're talking about the initial authoring of a video file, right?

Not HD equipment but a regular dvd player and tv. For instance, let's say I record something in HD from tv onto my computer and it's 3 GB--could I author it to be burned to a dvd5 without harming the quality? Or would it be converted to SD? I'm just confused about why Bluray authoring is necessary if it's small enough to fit on a dvd. Am I mistaken that dvd's and Bluray discs are just storage containers of different size, or do Blurays have something that dvd's don't have?
