Your post compelled me to go around the Internet, looking for
info/opinions on this.
And - for video - it does sound like you're correct: DVD-R is
compatible with more players (I need to tell my mom - some relatives
have been unable to play the DVDs she's burned).
Apparenly I was confusing video use with computer (data) use - there
the +R _is_ better.
But it certainly sounds like you have the right side in this debate.
