I'm using Nero 8 to encode video from an HDV camcorder. I want to use a format with best possible quality but it must follow standards so that it can easily be played in the future.
Among the options to choose are "Nero Digital AVC" and simply "AVC". In "Nero Digital AVC", a subformat called "HDTV - AVC" appears to be the best. In "AVC", there are two subformats, "AVCHD compatible" and "HD-DVD compatible". Thus, there are three formats I may choose from. The "HDTV - AVC" codec is Nero-specific but they claim to follow MPEG-4 ISO standards. I don't know anything about the other two formats.
Do anyone have any idea which format I should use?
