    Why is the image quality so crappy for the events Apple produces when you make the quicktime video even the slightest bit larger? If you have quicktime pro and remember the dark days when you only had regular quicktime, is there an appreciable difference in the quality of the image produced as well or is it just the bells and whistles unrelated to image quality. On the same note, I don’t understand why Apple does this, but my two guesses are server constraints for huge files like a 2 hour video and to prevent competition or anyone from using the video for other purposes; just guesses.

    My guess is the same, and that for a two hour video to be streamed, it has to be that small for it to play smoothly.

    They should make it a podcast, or another way to download a higher res.

    right, I mean even most apple people I know don't really watch these events so not only do have quality expectations but a very high interest in the product so one would think it would be useful to make that experience as "apple-like" as possbe.
