Is it really the end of the world if you end up watching a video that is 2.2% lower quality than another? That's how I look at it. Maybe my standards are unacceptably low, but I "settle" (gasp!) for "good enough" plenty of the time.

And if your eyes and ears can not tell any difference, then it does not matter!

Spoken like a wise man that got decades more experience than me! :D :D

I do like cases where it’s a simple: 1080p.BluRay encode is the best version.

But it gets so complex when you have a film getting released on BluRay in various countries over various years and in SOME cases with huge differences in visual quality. That animation film „The Last Unicorn“ got released on BluRay in Germany and one version looked absolutely shitty compared to the rare collectors edition which apparently was remastered/transferred correctly!

Funnily I am not even a BluRay.Remux collector like most DataHoarders. (https://old.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder).

Wise I am not so sure. Someone who has needed eyeglasses from his early teens, with continually worsening vision over the years -- so I am used to less than perfect. At least my hearing has stayed fairly stable. I guess wearing earplugs or other hearing protection in very noisy environments actually worked for me! I am finding that reading subtitles on movies is getting more tiresome and difficult, and am starting to actually favor dubbing when possible. {shudder} What an abomination, I never would have thought I would do that! Well, I do have plenty of HK kung fu and Japanese monster movies I can go to.

Data Hoarders, hmmm. People decay, art decays, architecture decays ... I see no reason to preserve data forever. Let it go like everything else. Most of it is ultimately worthless anyway.

For sure. The philosophy behind this is basically just: save everything you’re interested in locally and never rely on services, streaming sites keeping it online forever. I watched a Spanish tv series on Netflix (in HD). 2-3 months later they removed it already again. I’m glad I can rely on high quality WEB-DL‘s of it.

I got various YouTube channels archived where either YouTube or the uploader themselves have already deleted many videos.
