More Quicktime fun

The newest version of the Eye TV software, 1.8, has a H.264 preset. The starting quality settings are too high, but I found that if I dial it down enough it can do the encoding in a fairly reasonable time and it looks darn good. I’m using 1024 x 576 resolution, 2000 kbits/sec, and 29.97 fps. A 40 minute t.v. show comes out just over 600 MB. Sweet!
