    I would say bitrates, resolutions and such are more important. Plus both file types could be different formats.
     
  3. yuck quicktime, just another program i have to turn of in msconfig

    Please:toast: People take this POLL as I am presenting a case based on this information
     
  6. please do explain why you would be presenting a case against or for an inferior format such as .mov. not to mention it's from apple, which is even worst. it's like your going to be presenting a case on your sexual orientation in reguards to computers

    Mine does .Mov! But for ease of use and compatibility, I wish it did .Mpeg

    Because the company I work for Kodak uses .mov and I am trying to build a case so they will use the standard Mpeg ..! I know that .mov is silly compared to the compatibility of Mpeg but when you up against corporate I would like as much ammo as possible !!!!

    mpeg is easier to use imo, no converting, and almost everything supports mpeg video

    I have a Kodak V530 but only use it for photo's.If I was using video would rather have mpeg as I dont use Quicktime at all.
     
  15. wasn't tryin to bash you, just curious, don't take any offense, and you work for kodak, that must be sick, i've got like 6 of their digital camera's but i don't do video, i wish it was mpeg though

    Yea theres really no comparison.. Mpeg all day.. it's far more compatible and it take sup less memory and tends to run better.. Idk why, but it does.. Mov files are old school.. like beta max..lol.. using a .Mov file would make whoever develops it look like an infant in the technological world.. mpeg, no question.. :toast:

    oh and good luck on the presentation..

    Mpeg for sure. I'm sure both formats have their merits but mpeg is a LOT more convenient to use. Once I was doing a project with a friend (with his Kodak camera, as we didn't have anything better on hand), and when it came for the time to put it all together with Windows Movie Maker, it was pretty much hell.
