looking for freely downloadable vob trailers

Specifically, high action stuff (for instance Matrix Reloaded or Revolutions). It has to be something legit, not something that you can take off a DVD because the end goal is make re-encoded content available as part of a DVD-DivX player test.

I only know the usual DD/DTS/THX-stuff, like this:
http://www.hometheaterweb.nl/pages/vobtrailers.htm

I used to know a couple of other sites, but they seem to be dead.
(domain not available anymore etc.)

But, to digress slightly, I've got some HD trailers/teasers I'm 99.99% sure I found at some official (that is, legit) www-site. I tried googling them up again, but I can't seem to find them now though. :/
They aired at last years Superbowl (Matrix Reloaded, Charlie's Angels 2 and T3 or something).

They are identical to the other freely available trailers/teasers, but in high res (720p maybe, my XP1600 can't render them properly), MPEG-2 and with DD audio. Pretty nice stuff.
IANAL, so I don't know how those works with copyright and all that.

I'm at my parents for the holidays, and my pc is like 500 miles away, so I can't be more specific. It's not what you asked for anyway, now is it?

Not VOB files but could also be useful:

http://www.on2.com/vp6_raw.php3

"On2 is providing these raw files so you can do your own testing and quality comparisons with VP6. These are the raw AVI clips that professionals use for rating codec quality and performance. They are short, complex throughout, and extremely difficult to compress."

Clip "Football" - 290 MB
Clip "Mobile" - 89 MB
Clip To Kill a Lawyer "Fence" - 50 MB
Clip To Kill a Lawyer "Reaching" - 111 MB

The On2 clips might be "biased", you never know.

I'm actually not looking for Dolby, DTS and THX Trailers but movie trailers.

Could be, but then again some codecs may work even better than On2 with their own clips

A DV source used for MPEG-2 benchmarking here:

I searched too, but saw only MOV and WMV trailers an (many) sites.
Probably big size is reason...

Why not convert MOV to a format useful for AVS source?
Is there any license problem?

Maybe this thread could help with QT sources:

Because MOV trailers are already significantly comrpessed.

If you look at the thread I linked to you'll see that you can use MOV with DirectShowSource without converting into another compressed format.

Since most trailers around have a pretty good detail it wouldn't harm that much IMHO to use them instead of VOBs.

hmm,.. there are some hdtv files out there e.g. here:
ftp://ftp.cmf.nrl.navy.mil/pub/iHDTV/ don't know if there are much action, but the quality should be fine.

DVD use also compression, namely MPEG2. The Matrix Reloaded Trailer we have been using for your latest samples is a high bitrate, high quality 1000 x 540 res MOV sample, size is 100 MB for roughly 3 minutes. It can be looked at as better than DVD quality and should be the perfect source for a proper codec comparison .... but dont ask me about redistribution, i simply cant answer that. At least, nobody from Warner sent me an email to take them off our website yet ....
