    Absolute meme. I've got cds that are over 30 years old and have none of the degradation we're ~~*told*~~ they should.
    I wouldnt be surprised if tales of discrot were propagated by some music label stooges once they realized people who had the cd didnt need to rebuy it digitally.

      I think the idea is that by using the ~100 year shelf life of optical you’ll have time in the future to free your kinos to some other technology.

          None of which are a problem if you live in the first world and not like right on a beach with the doors open all the time.

          i have rot on some that i never even watched

          tell that to my literal disks that are unusable

          Thirdies detected.

          Bullshit.
          I own hundreds of DVD's & Blu-rays (some nearly two decades old) & have lost only 3 to defects.
          One of those (a Criterion edition of Jarmusch's Down By Law) died of rot.
          The other two had not so much as even a tiny scratch but stopped working for whatever reason.
          All to say, your argument doesn't hold up.
          Face it: Physical media chads are destined to rule the kinosphere.
          If, like a homosexual, you choose to let streaming services decide what you can or cannot watch, then you're an irredeemable cuck & sorry to say, but that's on you.

          This. Out of tons of discs I've owned, there's only one that I've been able to witness degrading over the years and it's definitely a defect which has been dying very slowly. My DVD copy of The Lost World: Jurassic Park gets hung up for a second on each of the chapter breaks. When it first started happening it would be a very quick stutter but over the years since then the pauses have gotten longer. It still plays all the way through even if it's barely holding on and I've had it for probably 15 years.

    I don't get physical gays. Takes up space for no reason. If you are really a "OMG U DONT OWN IT!!" type autist I have to assume you are downloading and backing up anything you want digitally. It's easier, cheaper, faster, and more convenient. There is literally no downside

      I've always liked physical media since I was a kid buying VHS movies. I have never liked or owned a streaming service, but have used them plenty. It's hard to find something worth while, and it's easier to have a collection of guaranteed movies I like. I have zero vices, don't drink or smoke, so I spend a little bit of money on physical media. I don't buy everything, I don't buy new, I'm very selective. Pic related isn't updated. /blog

        You have to fix up your John Carpenter collection. That copy of Escape from New York is notoriously awful. Does it even have any bonus features?

        Scream / Shout! Factory's Carpetner Blu Rays are top notch. There's no reason to buy every movie he ever made, but you're killing me with the worst possible releases over here.

          Is it really that bad? And I personally don't care about bonus features. Never have.

      What's stopping me from buying a disc, redeeming the digital code, and pirating a copy of the movie?

      I had terabytes of stuff on portable hard drives and a computer which was all destroyed but I still have a huge amount of videos and DVDs so although it was a loss i still have 90% of what I had before. Also do you live in a closet? Even if you had 1000 DVDs they're not going to take up that much space.

    I had thousands of cdr/dvdr. They had a 10% failure rate after a decade. I now have 0.
    Keep a backup drive that is only connected when backing up.

    The 20+ year old dvd copy of air force one that my uncle used to put on the tv when he baby sat me still works fine. What kind of abuse do you even have to put these things through for them to degrade?

      No, I just get decent rips of them because ripping them is time consuming.

    CD rot is a meme, it was only a problem for discs made in a specific time period in the early 90s.
