Major differences btwn H.264 and DivX


Recommended Posts

I've been hearing all these good things about H.264, like how it's better than just about any other format for small video sizes and resolutions, but I'm wondering if it's true. I ask because I'll be redownloading some videos I lost when my backup died and I want to know if I should go for it over DivX, which is another one of the choices. I'll be looking at the videos on either my 15.4" laptop or a PMP; I don't know which yet, but it'll at least have a 2.4" screen.

264 is good for small files on things like ipods and keeping the file size down with good quality video, but I prefer xvid and divx because my DVD player plays them natively. If you just watching them on your pc, then I would go for what you want by comapring the two same videos encoded with both and make a decision on preference from there.
