Windows Media High Definition

A few new clips were posted recently - among others, the trailer for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check it out!

For those of you who don't know Windows Media HD, it's Microsoft's codec for HD video encoding. If you have a Media Center PC hooked up to a HD-ready set [as I do], the quality is absolutely stunning. However, if you have a reasonably modern PC [preferably any Pentium 4 with hyperthreading] and a reasonably high resolution display [say, 1280 by 1024], then you should be able to check this out on your PC.

Best of all, I understand this is gonna be part of the next generation DVD standard - so there's hope yet that you can get hi-def DVDs in the future. Right now, there's only one Hollywood movie HD-DVD - Terminator 2 - and I'd like to see more, 'cuz once you've seen a HD-DVD, you're aware of how ordinary regular old DVDs look.
