    Hello,

    A quick question:

    I'm writing now an article that includes a short movie. I've been playing with video format, transcoding using VirtualDub and VLC and also converting to flash using ffmpeg.

    I noticed that XviD offers better quality than .flv format, even a supposedly lossless transcoding, even though .flv has about 50% more bytes.

    Of course, there's the option of me being dumb. Does anyone have any tips for making movies and formatting, flash in particular? Except the above solutions?

    Mrk
