    Just a thought. I was playing Ice Age 2 for the Wii today, and there are lots of video-clips from the movie used as cutscenes. These were of really high quality I thought... it looked better than standard DVD-quality so I was just thinking if the Wii supports h.264 encoding perhaps? It does use Quicktime.

    No idea what Ice age uses (wild guess says RAD codecs, they seem to be standard for games, especially generic nonsense like this), quicktime is just a container. Bear in mind ice age is CGI as well not actual footage which makes a nice difference for quality.

    If you want to play video it supports motion JPEG as standard (a useless codec/standard if ever I saw one) but mencoder/mplayer got a port for the cube (and by extension Wii) so you get whatever that has, I am unsure about the h264 support (or what profiles it can take) though.
