Actually, DVD stands for Digital Versatile Disc. Originally, it stood for Digital Video Disc, but since a DVD can store more than just video, marketers usually refer to it as a Digital Versatile Disc.

It is Versatile Disc . But as Dvd's are mostly used to see video is called as Video.

DvD was originally said to stand for Digital Video Disc and later it becoms Digital Versatile Disc but the current official stance of the DvD Forum is that the format should just be referred to as DvD

Well..DVD stands for either Digital versatile disc or digital video disc. Its more versatile or is competent in many areas, and hence the name! I think its more appropriate to call DVD as digital versatile disc as it serves the purpose!

V can be any thing like Very, Vary, Variety, Vobble, Velocity .... however DVD stands for Digital Video Disk And ur point about giving rate is funny enough, how can u give "higher rates" there are only three rates +, - and report abuse !

Yes it is versatile as it implies that it is better than video, because of the extra features a dvd has apart from normal videos which in most cases do not have deleted scenes and added commentaries and other great special features.
