Interesting. I will look at those. However, since they are interlaced,
that is a serious limitation. None of the codecs that I used support
interlaced video.. so testing them with interlaced video is unrealistic.
I believe that interlacing in this day and age is unnecessary.
Interlacing really only has a place on old school TVs.

The version of VP3 that I have includes a de-noise filter prior to
encoding. I am too unskilled to be able to edit the source to remove

QT can give YUV, or RGB data to codecs, depending on how they declare
what colourspaces they accept. (3ivx, for example, has advertised a
great deal, that it can accept YUV video directly)
