Compressing and Embedding Movies

Compressing your movie for publishing on the Web is the last significant step of media preparation. Although there are a couple of formats, the three most popular compression codecs for Web video are Apple QuickTime, Windows Media and RealNetworks’ RealVideo. Although RealVideo offered streaming technology before QuickTime did, Apple has caught up on that technological front.

If you plan to use video frequently on your Web sites, consider buying Discreet’s Cleaner. Cleaner is a dream when it comes to encoding video and audio. It supports the highest-quality compression codecs, such as Sorenson Pro, QDesign Music Codec 2 Professional Edition, Real G2, Windows Media, and original source MP3. All these formats are popular and important on the Web; if you’ve ever seen the amazing results that you can get with Sorenson 3, you’ll understand why. And since Cleaner also does batch processing, you can set up a computer to do the time-consuming encoding task at night. This alone could justify the investment, but there is so much more.
