you know what i dont know to be honest, most of the vods i do i cut into wmv...

i dop this cos it cuts the vid down in size, but....it wont work on non windows machines, unless you have the right codecs....so avis, mpeg ans a few other will work cross platform....

i think

wmvs are convenient for the video producer's standpoint.
as a video aficionado (see also: neeeerd) i prefer divx cus it's not as lossy as WMV/RM when it has been exported properly, and is viewable on non pcs. X-Vid = brill quality, but is barely supported by alotta people.
using a pc-only standard is arguably defeating the purpose of maximally spreading the love of twirlage.
