    The multi-pass is much better than the single-pass version (as it shoould be).

    I have to say I am very impressed with QT7. Not just for it's handling of AVC but because of how it handles some codecs it used to hate as well.

    yup i tried encoding the clip at 1600kbits/sec at full anamorphic dvd res (816x336 pixels for 2.35:1 aspect ratio) and



    it played back full screen really smoothly on my iBook 933mhz G4 256mb ram

    Thanks for the test clips sunilraman,



    H.264 is great. I can't wait until most things are encoded with this codec - it should transform web video. With the small file sizes/high quality.
