Thanks for taking the time to make those wmv files.

The point of this discussion, for me,  was to point out what I feel  
is an often repeated and unfair criticism of QuickTime, by Windows  
users.  Namely, "you can't make QuickTime clips as small as Windows  
Media."  As you can see from these comparison clips, you certainly  
can.  Now, what about the quality.  Well, I think the H.264 clips are  
slightly better and the 3ivx and WMV are pretty darn close.  Again, I  
think most casual observers won't even be able to tell the difference  
at all.  That's really no surprise as they're all a version of mpeg4
