4 May, 2005

MacCentre701, a Mac division of SillyDog701, created a video codec comparison page for some popular video codecs used in today's internet movie delivery (delivery codecs).
A 45 second desktop show was captured uncompressed (312MB).

The same movie is then exported to QuickTime 7's exciting H.264 codec, as well as H.263, Sorenson Video 3, MPEG-4 codecs for comparison. Without a doubt, H.264 is a great codec. You can see the details in this page.

See QuickTime codec comparison page for more detail.

A screenshot of the desktop show was captured.

H.264 is also known as MPEG-4 Part 10. H.263 is the standard by ITC for internet video conferencing, Sorenson Video 3 is a popular codec as it delivered clear picture and reasonable small file size. MPEG-4 is a new standard.

See QuickTime codec comparison page for more detail.
