The Rules wrote:Files for competition should be AVI, MPG, WMV or MP4 format and compressed using DivX or xVid video compression and MP3 audio compression.
The second half of that sentence is fundamentally incompatible with the first -- XviD/MP3 works fine for AVI files, sure, but it's impossible in MPEGs and WMVs and sub-optimal for MP4 (people prefer x264/AAC).
Also, are there any guidelines on frame rate, resolution, audio sample rate, etc.?

It's okay if I do the same this year. I'm unfamilliar with MPG and AVI.
