Thank you all very much for the feedback, it has been very helpful.

YouTube is very egalitarian, and the movies run on almost anything. The downside is, their compression looks and sounds mushy. (They recently claimed to have improved this, but not by much.)

I'll continue to put stuff up on youTube, but I'll make higher-res copies on my own website, including some of my previous videos. I've discovered that the films the NFB puts up can be embedded on other sites, so some of my old NFB films will start appearing there too.

For techies... ...I'm using a video codec called "H.264" which manages to achieve an incredible 40 - to- one compression ratio (compared to standard "DV" video) with almost no visible loss.   It's been included with Apple's Quicktime for 2-3 years.

For sound I use "AAC" which is becoming quite standard in things like the iPod and sounds nicer than MP3.

Thanks again. I'll be polishing up my website aver the next few weeks....
