The ripping is to extract the audiovisual content of a medium or container , digital or physical, to another medium. Ripped files are generally distributed over the Internet. The difference between the various types of rips is due to the original source or medium, from which the audiovisual content was extracted.

CAMRip refers to the audiovisual content being captured during a screening, usually in a movie theater . A ripped HDTS is similar to a CAMRip, with the difference that with HDTS the video and audio were recorded separately, and then synchronized .

DVDRip indicates that the source from which the audiovisual content was extracted was a DVD , while a BDRip indicates that the source was a Blu-Ray .

In the case of HDTVRip , the origin of the content was an analog or digital transmission of high definition television . Finally, the WEBRip refers to the fact that the audiovisual content was captured from an online streaming service , for example, such as the one offered by Netflix or Amazon.

The practice of extracting audiovisual content from a container and distributing it without permission is prohibited in many regions, being considered an act of piracy .

What is ripping?

The ripping or digital extraction , known as rip in Spanish, is the process of taking the digital information from one medium or container (CD, DVD, TV, transmission service), and place it in another digital storage medium, physical or digital.

Digital extraction differs from a simple copy of a disc, in that the latter produces a physical duplicate of a DVD. That is, the copy implies that the copied disc has the same information as the original disc (from which the copy was made).

However, when this digital extraction process is performed, the original file often goes through a compression or recoding process . This allows it to be simpler to access, distribute, use or reproduce on different media.

To make a rip (information extracted from one medium to another), programs are used that allow the digital information to be extracted from the file, and that transfer it to some storage medium.

It is also common for the recording or copying of different audiovisual files to be named as a rip , generally produced for the same purpose for which a real rip is made .

For example, a CAMRip is also known as a rip , even if it is a recording of a movie made in a movie theater with a video camera.

The ripped files are distributed by different channels. They are downloaded as torrents , or are available on different pages on the Internet that allow viewing without downloading.

It is worth mentioning that the practice of distributing and commercializing protected audiovisual material is prohibited and is penalized in most regions, under copyright and commercial laws.

This means that ripping and copying audiovisual material without permission can have legal consequences and is considered a form of piracy .

What is a CAMRip?

The CAMRip , cam rip or simply cam , refers to the audiovisual digital file that has been captured in a movie theater .

Generally, this type of recording is performed by using a camcorder , either a high quality or found in recording devices of lower quality, such as the chamber of a smart phone ( smartphone ).

The quality of this type of audiovisual file is low , since the recording conditions (the movie theater) are not suitable. In addition, image capture also depends on the attributes of the recording device and the camera remains static during recording. The audio is captured in the theater itself by the same recording device, adding any noise or sounds from the environment.

A CAMRip is distributed when there has been no official release of any DVD / Blu-Ray, nor the transmission or streaming of a particular movie.

The capture made to produce the CAMRip is an illegal practice , due to copyright and commercial rights of audiovisual works.

Characteristics of a CAMRip

  • It is done by capturing the video and audio of a film during its projection in a movie theater with a portable device.
  • The file to be distributed is recoded to facilitate its distribution.
  • The resolution of the produced file may vary, but its visual quality is independent of the recording quality of the capture device.
  • It is generally available prior to the release of the DVD, Blu-Ray, or the transmission of the movie.
  • Both video and audio are of low quality.

What is an HDTS?

The HDTS is a file that has been recorded during the projection of an audiovisual medium, generally in a movie theater during the showing of a film.

The acronym in English HDTS or High Definition Telesync , can be translated in Spanish as ‘high quality telesynchronized’, and refers to the fact that both audio and video have been captured by high definition devices separately, being then synchronized.

Video is obtained from a high definition recorder, while audio is captured directly from a connection to the sound projection device in the theater, or from headphone jacks located in the seats.

The quality of the audio is much better than what would be obtained if the audio had been recorded from the ambient sound of the theater, since only the audio of the film is captured in high quality.

A high definition camera is used to carry out the recording, often mounted on a tripod or some stabilizer.

As with CAMRip, HDTS ripping in movie theaters is illegal and screenings are protected by copyright and commercial rights.

Characteristics of a HDTS

  • Video and audio capture is done during a movie projection, in a movie theater.
  • The audio is captured with an audio recorder or the signal is taken from a high-quality source in the cinema itself.
  • Audio and video are synchronized in some video editor.
  • The resolution of the produced file may vary, but its visual quality is independent of the recording quality of the capture device.
  • It is generally available prior to the release of the DVD, Blu-Ray, or the transmission of the movie.
  • The video is of low quality, the audio is of high quality, having a recoding before distribution.

What is a DVDRip?

DVDRip refers to a file that results from the extraction of information or data from a DVD onto a storage medium.

The DVD from which the audiovisual archive comes is generally a finished version of the DVD that is about to be released or has been released , or an early release to markets in other regions.

On many occasions, the name of an audiovisual file appears as with the extension “.DVDRip”, but this does not mean that it is in a DVD format, but rather that the file was extracted from a DVD.

When doing a rip or digital extraction, the information of the original file is compressed, facilitating its accessibility and distribution. Also, it is possible to combine different media on the DVDRip. This allows the DVDRip to have both audio, video and subtitle files . The extras that come on the original DVD are almost never added to the DVDRip.

Being a digital extraction of a DVD, a DVDRip usually presents better quality than HDTS and CAMRip.

Regarding its legality, producing a DVDRip is not always an illegal act, although this depends on the specific jurisdiction. However, the distribution of DVD content, in the form of DVDRip, is commonly penalized .

Features of a DVDRip

  • This is a real rip , since the audiovisual content of a DVD is extracted by means of a specific program and stored in some other medium.
  • The original DVD is generally an official movie release.
  • It is common that the file has been compressed (recoded), to reduce its size.
  • Quality is good, but falls short of high definition, limited by the original DVD (480p).

What is BDRip?

BDRip is a file that is extracted from a Blu-Ray disc and is generally recoded or compressed. It is common that it is in high definition, with resolutions of 720p and 1080p.

It is better than DVDRip in quality, but it also takes up more space when stored, due to its size. The compression of the file is not always carried out towards a high definition resolution, being able to go from 1080p to lower resolutions, for example, 480p.

As with DVDRip, BDRip files contain different types of media, extracted from the original Blu-Ray file or added to it. The original Blu-Ray data is large, so it takes up a lot of space. Hence, for distribution, the BDRip are recoded and go through a compression process.

As with the DVDRip, the actual production of a BDRip is not always prohibited, but its distribution or marketing is prohibited .

Features of a BDRip

  • It is a real rip , the result of capturing the audiovisual content of a Blu-Ray, using a program to extract the digital information from it.
  • The original Blu-Ray has already been officially released in some market.
  • It is recoded to reduce the size of the original Blu-ray, which makes it easier to distribute.
  • It is distributed in versions of high definition of 720p and 1080p (although it can be found in lower resolutions).

What is an HDTVRip?

An HDTV ( High Definition TV ) or high quality television refers to the signal sent from some analog (cable or normal television) or digital service, as well as the device that receives it (TV). The HDTVRip is an audiovisual file in which the digital extraction comes from a transmission of a television channel (cable, satellite, etc.).

The recording of this type of file is carried out through a device connected to a television set or captures the signal from a digital or satellite transmission, as is the case with a digital recording and conversion box.

Even if the HDTV signal is of high quality, the HDTVRip may present a different quality, due to the compression of the file to reduce its size.

In general, these files offer better quality than DVDRip and BDRip. The resolution and quality are high, reaching 2160p (4k), considered as ultra high definition (UHD, for its acronym in English).

The legality of this type of recording depends on the jurisdiction. Its distribution and commercialization, however, is prohibited in many markets.

Features of an HDTVRip

  • The source is a television broadcast, analog or digital.
  • The capture can be done through a computer, a TV capture device, a USB video card and specific recording boxes for it, among others.
  • It is of good quality, generally high definition, although it can always depend on the encoding.

What is a WEBRip?

The WEBRip is a file that results from the extraction of audiovisual content from a transmission of an online service or streaming . These are generally series and movies in high definition. The file of a WEBRip is compressed, which reduces its size and facilitates its distribution.

The WEBRip capture is carried out by means of the personal computer, a capture card or a digital recording box, during the reproduction of the original audiovisual medium (a series on Netflix, for example).

This means that the file can present logos and different types of advertisements during its reproduction, which are embedded ( harcoded ) in it.

The quality of a WEBRip is generally high, although this may be slightly lower than that of a file known as WEB-DL . The latter refers to a file that is downloaded directly from a service that distributes it online, preserving its original quality.

The resolution reaches 2160p (4k) or UHD. However, they are also distributed compressed, with resolutions of 720p and 1080p.

Making a WEBRip, distributing it or commercializing the transmissions of online services, is generally prohibited .

Features of a WEBRip

  • The source from which the audio and video is captured is an online streaming service.
  • The capture can be done through a computer, a TV capture device, a USB video card and specific recording boxes for it, among others.
  • It is of high quality, however it depends on compression.
