Question: What Do The Letters "DVD" Actually Stand For?
Answer: DVD stands for Digital Versatile Disc. DVDs can be used for storing video, audio, still image, or computer data. Many people refer to DVD as a Digital Video Disc, however, technically, this is not correct.

TRIVIA ALERT: In case you were wondering, VHS stands for Video Home System.
