Could someone give me a brief introduction to the above subject? I assume that
each bitstream format (avi, mov, mpeg) has a particular form of compression so
my first question is:
Which format gives the best compression? What are the rspective ratios?
(Assuming the avi has no sound interleaved).
Which Video Capture Cards produce the most compressed file? Is the compression
produced by the chip or is it the software that does it?
Is there an elementary video capture card that merely converts from analog to
digital and then relies on software to do the compression?
