What Does This Mean?
« on: October 05, 2007, 10:28:58 AM »
At Amazon while looking at DVD's, one had this: Dub Sub Ac3 Dol Dts.  Does anyone know what it means?

Dub = Perhaps referring to some sort of voice-over, or simply to the original language of the audio track, sometimes referred to as the "dub".

Sub = Subtitles included, presumably.

Ac3 = I think it's an audio format of some sort. (Especially given: see below)

Dol = Very probably referring to Dolby Digital, an audio format.

Dts = Almost certainly referring to DTS, a high-end digital audio format.


I hope that helped! :)
