in reply to The next successful successor to DVD as a medium for video will be:

I think, it will have to be tangible, else it won't really be a replacement for DVDs.
I imagine something USB sticks like, people will be able to load/unload, movies to their DVD players huge multi-gigabytes memory.
This will mean, I can load like 10 movies to my DVD player and switch between them using the remote controller, without having to make several trips to the DVD player.
This of courses, make it easier for people to share movies, so I don't think it will ever happen, but from a user perspective, I would vote for it.

[LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
