In addition to the main video that can be watched when playing a DVD, there are also a lot of advertising data and video clips that are not necessary for the viewer, so the capacity is usually very large. While many people create ISO files from DVDs for backup purposes, an ISO is actually a DVD archive file that contains the entire contents of a DVD, and is as large as a DVD.
