i found out what wmv hd is, whats everyones preference and why?!
#2
I believe x264 is another compression used for hi def material?
banned#3
a bit like asking why so many different firewalls.

at the end of the day, matroska is best for quality/compression and anything microsoft is worst (WMV). MP4 isnt any better mind - strictly for ipod size viewers..

for High Def, the Xbox 360 supports h.264 (not x.264) and WMV:HD
#5
got no problems with divx on a hdtv
#6
whats h.264?!
#7

#8

I use convertxtodvd to convert practivally any divx, mkv etc to dvd format.

mkv is not actually a video compression codec, its a "container" like format for combining video,audio and subtitle streams into a single file, inside the mkv it is probably a mixture of these

depends on your pc. mine converts at a ratio of 2 to 1 (e.g. 30 minute video converts to dvd format in 15 mins)

If you are able to stream, I use Encode360, dead simple, simply select the .mkv (which most HD downloads are in) select your desired output i.e. 720p and click convert.

Processor dependant it will usually take a couple of hours but massivly reduces the file size, say a .mkv is 7GB encode360 will get it down to 3/4GB at 720p.

Don't really see the point in putting an .mkv on a DVD surely you might as well just get the DIVX as all the quality will be lost.

to burn to a dvd i use convertxtodvd if i have more than 1 file to convert onto the same dvd or if its just 1 film i always use winavi as it is super quick and gives good results. lots of options as well. i also always use imgburn to burn the files onto disc as i have very very rarely ever produced coasters with it.
