RealPlayer format is really pathetic, and it's a proprietry piece of junk. They achieve the 35 MB filesize with a very small image, only (320x200, or possibly smaller), with a very low bitrate, resulting in terrible picutre quality. The sound quality isn't great either. DVDs however are very high quality, at minimum 1024x768 with a very high bitrate. Broadband internet is very availible and becoming more and more affordable every month.
If you're downloading episodes at work, once your resident BOFH finds out, your life will be hell regardless of quality.
Second: How U think, how long DVDdisc will traveling by post to Russua?
I've never heard of "Russua". Sending stuff (CDs/DVDs) international takes about one or two weeks. The wait for the discs is well worth it, for the extra quality and features.
And third: _I_HAVE_NOT_ DVD-player. And I don't want to buy it, because my comp already overloaded witn different devices.
DVD Players or DVD ROMs are very
cheap, about 50 AUD for a player, a little more for a CD-RW + DVD-ROM combo drive. By having a combo drive you have no need for an existing CD Burner. And the DVD player plugs into a TV (yes, it's lower quality, but no lower than you would with RealPlayer format) If you're running Windows, maybe it's time for a reinstall? Maybe you should install a spell checker too while you're at it?
