How Many Movies does 2Gb Hold?

How many movies can 2GB hold? While 2GB is a small amount of storage space, you are still able to fit some movies onto it.

If you keep on reading, I will give you some insight into how much videos can be stored on 2GB.

How Many Movies can 2GB Hold?

I should let you know that all the information that I used in the table is based off real world averages. While they are averages, you should know that movies can vary in size in real life, from a lot bigger to a lot smaller, this really depends on various factors.
Movie Sizes used:

To give you an idea as to the storage capacity of 1GB of data, we will use the general

SD Movie from iTunes = 1.5GB (Average Size)

720p Movie from iTunes = 4GB (Average Size)

1080p Movie from iTunes = 5GB (Average Size)

DVD Rip (Pirated) = 700MB (Average Size)*

Blue Ray Rip 720p (Pirated) = 1GB (Average Size)*

Blue Ray Rip 1080p (Pirated) = 3.5GB (Average Size)*

*Please note that the numbers used above are all averages and the file sizes can vary drastically, as this depends on the length of the movie as well as how they are encoded.

Movie Type Size 2 GB
SD Movie from iTunes 1.5 GB 1
720p Movie from iTunes 4 GB 0
1080p Movie from iTunes 5 GB 0
DVD Rip (Pirated) 700 MB 2
Blue Ray Rip 720p (Pirated) 1 GB 2
Blue Ray Rip 1080p (Pirated) 3.5 GB 0

Even though 2GB is very small, you can fit a couple of movies on it, depending on the movie type that you use.

If you are ripping movies yourself, you could a fit a bit more on 2GB, but you would probably have to get the movies and encode them at a lower bitrate and video size.
