im fairly impressed
however of course i have no idea if i have much block level duplication or not… i know i have zero file level duplication so that would be useless to me.
8.9 out of my 9TB is heavily compressed video - a Mix of AVC, MPEG 2 & MPEG4 (and of course accompanying AC3/DTS/DTS-HD tracks - which consume a lot of space in their own right!)
my knowledge of this is hovering around the zero mark, but i understand that they are all (obviously) VERY lossy codecs, but would this imply that they are essentially breaking things down to a set of standardised chunks - many of which are possibly identical across my media collection… ?
I’ be very interested to hear the thoughts of anyone with any knowledge of video compression?
of course even if the answer were yes - i have no way to implement it, its just curiosity
