    Ben, once a film is encoded (with any of the VC-1, Mpeg-2, Mpeg-4 codecs) is there a way to determine the codec used? Does the PS3 actual examine the video/pic to find the codec used or is that being passed somewhere as a parameter/value?

    For HD DVD, we can do bitrate analysis and such on the disc without decrypting it, since the encryption happens at a lower level. I don't believe there are any public tools to do this, but I'm sure someone will release one soon.

    We also have our own analysis tool that ships with PEP/CineVision PSE that lets us do very detailed analysis of the bits before they get muxed in.
