    Hi guys!

    I'm a little confused about the many different video formats and whats different/better/worse. I'd appreciate it if someone could link me to an article which explained it all to dummies like me or just give a brief explanation.

    Cheers

    It is HOW the content is recorded, NOT the codec used, that determines the "quality" of the final product. Some codecs have advantages over others, but there isn't a "best" codec.
