So, I was playing around with the new beta of Expression Encoder 2 (free download!) and wanted to see how low I could push HD. Follow the link below to a Silverlight-embedded 2 Mbps movie "720p" movie trailer (hosted on our Silverlight Streaming service):
Thanks for sharing that with us Ben, that's pretty impressive for 2Mb/s.
I do however have one comment, what on earth is going on with the colour; everybody looks like they have applied far too much fake tan, there's a general orange cast to the whole trailer.
