The upcoming 2.1 release will offer much enhanced MPEG-1 and 2 encoding as well.

What issues did you have with WMV encoding and CM? Quality? Compatibility? Have you tested the newest 3.1 release? WMV encoding has been quite enhanced with MBR intellistream encoding for one.

Hello Late again with the reply

Looking into 3.1 now. However the previous version I produced WMV files that did not have the key frame setting of
