Useless category. We don't categorize images by resolution either. Do a database query if you want to know that. This nomination also includes all the subcategories Multichill (talk) 14:36, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

  • undecided -- some statistics on video resolution could be useful, and also on bitrate. Can this be extracted by database query, periodically? If categories were by width only, there'd be fewer subcategories. --LA2 (talk) 11:00, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
  • I guess that this concerns typical categories that are created because we have no mixed category/tagging system. Other tags could be B&W/n bit color depth/nightview/resolution/screen ratio/sound included (mono, stereo, Dolby)/compression bit rate/compression type/3D/HD format ... Basically, if want to organise all that in a comprehensive category system, it will keep us buzy for a couple of generations. Once they are properly tagged, once could easily think of simple filtering extensions of search and display facilities, or query a database as interim solution. --Foroa (talk) 11:29, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep as we have no replacement for e.g. that usecase: search for videos by catscan: all biology videos which are in fullHD. --Saibo (Δ) 15:43, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote.svg Delete Even so, the category system is not well-equipped enough to handle such cases; generally speaking a database dump would be more apt to search for specific video display resolutions. A comparable category search for image resolutions would also only add clutter. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 15:58, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

No consensus for deletion. No action taken. Sven Manguard Wha? 19:47, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
