Default Will anyone here be authoring DVD's in WMV9?

Some people have accused me of working for Microsoft, but in April, Apex is planning to release DVD Players that play WMA9/WMV9. I for one, have a large collection of wrestling shows on tape, and I cringe at the thought of spending money for all the DVD's that only hold 3-4 hours in MPEG2. I doubt that there is anyone who would disagree that WMV9 has better compression than MPEG2. I, for one will be encoding my DVD's in Windows Media, and want to hear what all of you think. Also, WMA9 Professional lets you do 5.1 channel audio at 256k. good for surround movies.

I can't stand the format, but it's handy that some
players will support it..

It's not the DVD standard and never will be, meaning
friends/family will not be able to play the DVDs
unlike the DVD standard that they can play.

You'd be better off encoding to MPEG4.
Many DVD players are including this format on their players now and whacks MPEG2 and WMV in the GOB for quality vs file size.

I would guess that in the future MPEG4 will overtake MPEG2 as the mainstream format for DVD as soon as most players begin to support it and then commercial MPEG4 DVD's should become available.

I suppose I could give it a try, but which codecs "qualify" as MPEG 4?

DIVX, XVID, 3IVX, MS-1,2,3 and a few other formats.

Most of the ones which are supporting MPEG4 are also supporting WMV, so you could just get one that does both formats.

Just type - 'Mpeg 4 dvd player' in to Google.com for more info.
