WMV9: With WMV9 being standardized as VC1, we’ll probably not see more features in it, but having a standardized bitstream and featureset doesn’t mean there cannot be any progress. It’s just that I have not really seen it since the beta. But, detail wise some things have changed and I recall rating WMV9 in the “less details” area, which it no longer is (if you look beyond the problems that WMV9 had on my machine). But, if I were a broadcaster or potential user of HD DVD/ Blu-Ray, seeing the result of WMV9 and ateme’s AVC codecs, I’d definitely go for the AVC standard.
Finally, XviD, one year
