Software: VirtualDub, MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b7, Quicktime Player 10.1
I have come across something rather interesting in my compression experiments. I found a codec called "Apple Intermediate Codec" [yeah, Apple was never really good at coming up with names for their products] that seems to keep all the quality of my huffy avi fresh from VirtualDub while shrinking the file size IMMENSELY.
For example, here is a screenshot of the avi file right from VDub:
I watched both videos side-by-side and saw the exact same quality. I even spotted the same minor imperfections when i went frame by frame.
Now my question is, before I jump the gun and convert ALL of my DVDs with this codec:
IS ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH THIS CODEC AND IS THERE SOMETHING THAT I AM OVERLOOKING? Might I run into a problem that I am not aware of?
