Which version of VLC are you using? Also, post a sample file. I have no trouble reading rendering 1080i60 m2t files with VLC for the last two years.

You don't say what format they're rendered in - apparently, cineform codec doesn't play with VLC

Cineform

If you're not concerned with Macintosh or Linux viewers, Windows Media Video is very, very good in several ways.

Great codec performance for the bitrate, good rescaling in the player, multibitrate files, good on and off the internet, good automatic codec updates, good penetration with PCs - I'm sure there are some others. Try WMV 9 at perhaps 6Mbps for 1080i.

If you have some control over the PCs that you want to distribute to, Cineform Neo Player is also very good for Cineform codec AVIs, but internet distribution is tough. Do I remember about 28Mbps at medium and 40Mbps at high quality? But great for harddrive playback.

For something that is truely cross-platform/cross-browser, Flash is an excellent choice that Vegas does not handle natively. There are 3 codecs in use - Spark, which is free and greedy for bitrate; VP6 is pretty good, costs several hundred $ USD, but comes with Flash CS3 and Flash CS4; and h.264, great codec, which Vegas can do, but not all viewers can yet handle.

There is no "best" format. Even uncompressed is not best in all circumstances. It may have no compression artifacts, but now you have a huge file that is difficult to move between PCs, that won't play back off a CD, that may drop frames off harddrive playback, etc. What we are looking for is "good" for our current distribution.

Uncompressed is used primarily as a digital intermediate format when moving video between vegas and another application, either because we need all that quality and/or we need to preserve an alpha (transparency) channel.

Uncompressed is not a distribution format - even movie theaters that are doing digital projection on large screens are not receiving uncompressed files, they use a JPEG2000-based compression...

For Windows Media 9, try the 8Mbps HD 1080-30p template or the 6 Mbps HD 720-30p template, depending.

That will be related to pixel aspect ratio. That should be 1.3333 for HDV 1080, or 1.0 for HDV 720p. See it in File | Render As | Windows Media Video 9 | Custom | Video | Pixel Aspect Ratio. If you start with one of the above templates it should be correctly set.

Marcus, after selecting WMV as the file type, click in the Template box and you'll see 5 Mbps HD 720-25p Video and 6.7 Mbps HD 1080-25p Video options.
Select either of these, click Custom, click in the Template box at the top of the Project tab and you'll see even more options.
