for those with quick PC's

I found this from a mate yesterday, you'll want a very beasty PC and a good internet connection as the files are quite big.

"Windows Media Audio and Video 9 Series is a breakthrough new set of codecs that enables high definition video at resolutions up to 1080p and multichannel audio. See High Definition in action for yourself. Download samples of HD content in 720p and 1080p. "

the quality of these video clips is amazing! well worth the download if you're on ADSL, Cable and have a beast

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...tShowcase.aspx

ps. my Athlon 1ghz with GF4Ti and 512mb ram glitches playing the 720p video's

Re: for those with quick PC's

Downloading all eight movies (868Mb) in 1080p format now, will try them on my XP1800+ if that fails I'll try them on the XP2800+ with 128Mb card and AGP 8x as reccommended.

Re: for those with quick PC's

Unlimited speed/Unlimited download here!

Ok they run like crap on my XP1800+ with 64Mb vid card, but they run beautifully on the XP2800+ with 128Mb vid card.

But I've said this before, and I'll say it again. HDTV and similar video really doesn't live-up to its hype. If anything, most digital images are still compressed and you can see the jaggies around objects, especially on SD broadcasts. Definately not worth the money, although I nearly bought an SD Plasma retailing around $8000 but was so horrified at the crap picture quality I decided that $15,000 for an HD (which was just passable) was better spent on a new car.

I expect HD images too look as good as the movie screen does, but unfortunely with picture being recorded in "hi-Definition" at a resolution not much different from you computer's desktop, its not hard to see why they look like rubbish on a screen 1 metre wide.

However the WMVHD files were awesome for there size, but alas they were only bing played on a 17" monitor which can make analogue TV looks fantastic.

Re: for those with quick PC's

i have a digi set top box and sd widescreen telly (its the best that i could afford....just so i can see more v8 supercar)

simply awesome. you do notice when theres writing on the screen (large font) that somethings are "sawtoothed" but the colour and everthing else is cool man. best picture ive ever seen was an lcd widescreen 76cm it looked real man i swear it!

Re: for those with quick PC's

I have a cousin who works as a computer animation bloke making feature films. I was wondering about digital video, High defintion, etc, and how it compares to the big screen.
The resolution for such movies as Finding Nemo, Toy Story etc is a huge 2500 wide!! So that means those $15,000 Tvs dont even come close!! Did you know that?

Re: for those with quick PC's

The 720p versions played ok on my Athlon XP 2100+ nVidia4200 128mb pc, but it dropped lots of frames on the 1080p version.

I bought the super dooper region 1 edition of the T2 dvd a couple of years ago and now they brought out an Extreme Edition with even more extras.... geez :(
