I've been doing .wmv for a bit now and see alot of people are using h.264 at decent resolutions and it looks pretty good. What do you prefer?

I think H.264 is the king of the hill, at the moment.

h.264 looks great, but you'll want to see if the encoder has vbr capability... it can make a big difference in file size, if you are creating downloadable vids... audio could also be an issue, i seriously doubt that you'll be able to beat wmv 9.1 2-pass audio quality with the aac audio that comes with h.264... there are also issues with people not having the media player to correctly handle h.264.

you can download some comparison clips from the website in my sig.
