HandBrake: mpeg-4(ffmpeg) vs. h.264
For legacy reasons that I cannot remember, I've been using ffmpeg instead of h.264 to convert videos to an mp4 container to use on my iDevices. I think h.264 would work for me now that I'm fully Apple-compliant. So, my question is: Would I be better off making the switch, or is it not worth it? Any pros/cons to the two codecs would be appreciated.
FYI - I'm using HandBrake on Windows7 to convert .avi's that I get from ripping DVDs with FairUse Wizard, or mpeg-2 files from TiVo recordings.

The x264-encoder encodes videos in the H.264 standard (a.k.a. MPEG-4 Part 10), which allows higher resolutions, can produce a higher image quality and reduces the necessary bitrate.

I may never know how I got onto ffmpeg in the first place....
