10 codecs, one clip
on May 11, 2005 at 6:04:02 am


Lots of codec questions have been flying around lately with the release of Apple's H.264. I went ahead and made a wad of 10 clips using different codecs and encoders, with the same settings.

They're all 200 Kbps video only CBR, using the slowest, highest quality, 2-pass modes available. The content is very challenging, so none of them really look that good, but the differences are quite illuminating.

I won't prejudge things by saying what I think, but for those who are interested, here's the torrent:

I'd be curious to hear your comments.

And of course, anyone interested in how to make these wide varieties of files, and pull off this kind of preprocessing, check out my class at Stanford next month:
