Oh yes I totally agree. That's why I always enclude a Quicktime file for the feed. Actually, I'm treating the flash version as my low bandwidth option (and it's compatible back to Flash 6) so that affords me the opportunity to encode the Quicktime versions at higher bit rates than I would have before. But really I'm very impressed with the quality of video at low bit rates that Sorrenson 4 can produce.
