Not sure if this should be on the video forum instead, but it looked like that was mainly for people making videos rather than just watching them... Could someone please go over the practical/for-consumers differences between MPEG/other-unconverted videos and the H.264 ones? I remember reading somewhere that the original versions would be better for watching on larger screens, but I can't really afford the space to store two different versions of each vid, just so I can watch them at home and on the move. So far, I haven't noticed any actual quality difference between the converted and unconverted versions -- but so far I've only done older vids that weren't high resolution anyway. I have noticed that one converted vid is about half the size and bit rate of the original, while another is over twice the size and bit rate of the original, which doesn't make any sense at all to me -- where's it getting the extra data? And I'm really not looking forward to having to weigh for every single vid whether it's really worth doubling the size to have it with me. If it makes a difference, I'm not talking about movie-movies or tv shows at all, just music vids, mostly fanvids.
