    The aspect ratio on the download version is wrong.

    I can confirm that, its 4:3 and not 16:9.......looks completely odd. Luckily zoom player allows you to manually switch aspect ratios regadless of what the video is encoded in. Wheres the feature in WMP btw?

    Another thing, you guys should really work on the encodings. Makes that hd camcorder kind of a waste, doesnt it? If you download some other stuff from the internet the quality is alot better at about the same bitrate. Channel9 vids just seem kinda blocky. I dont know. Are you using 2pass at all? Perhaps offer two versions for download. Hey, its HD, so allow me to download the vids in WMV HD 720p. Isnt microsoft in the business of trying to convince people that hdtv is totally worth it. Convince the geeks first by letting them watch fellow geeks show off code in might just be able to read it all, hehe.

    @the_corona: FYI, the aspect radio changer is in Tools->Options->Devices, then select display and change the properties. It's a bit fiddly, yes, but it's there and I use it all the time.

    But I do agree with you, I have a nice fast connection at work and the videos that are on Channel9 could look a lot better if the bandwidth was utilised a bit more. Although I'd probably have the IT guy jumping on my head for killing his bandwidth!

    All in the name of geeky entertainment! Big Smile
