I want to first thank Richard Miller for his quick and accurate response
to my issue of using Firewire with videograbber. Richard pointed out
that one of the parameters needed to be changed to DirectX. Again, thank

Now, can anyone point me in the direction of the best Codec to use? 
Compression is NOT an issue. Quality of the video is. I am moving an
application from the Mac to the PC and need to be able to bring in video
in high quality using generic equipment. Any DV Firewire camera and and
PC with a Firewire port.  I'm trying to write a very basic app that
compares just a little to iMovie on the Mac.

Any and all ideas will be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
