    It depends on your what you want to do with your small file. If it means giving it to somebody unknown, then wmv is the most compatible.

  8. WMV, I'm amazed at the quality you get at such a small file size.

  9. Almost everything I do is destined for DVD so the only option is MPEG2/MPEG1.

  12. MPG1 or MPG2 because they don't need a lot of CPU power to be played.

    Matters what you mena by small.


    For tiny I use WMV. By tiny I mean, if it need to be less than 100MB.


    Anything larger and I go with MPEG2.

    I don't know what you're talking about.
