    There is a lot of talking taking place regarding different codecs.

    Some people say elecard is best some other say windvd is etc.
    What is really best is alittle bit subjective... :wink:

    My questions are the following..
    What are the relative merits of all these codecs, I mean which
    one should be used under what circumstances ?

    How are these related to the external player that's going to be used ?

    Could someone explain the difference between VMR and overlay and
    how is it related (if it is) to the codec/player choice?

    Please bear with me, I am pretty new to the whole bussiness and
    this huge amount of information is confusing me :cry: . I need to get
    things straight in my head. 8)

    Thanks in advance,
