Desktop in Action, part 5, now in H.264

Three months ago, I created a Desktop in Action, part 5, featuring the streaming and auto-selecting QuickTime technology, a beautiful Mac OS X desktop showcase that would audo-decide the best output based on user's QuickTime version and internet connection speed. Now, you can watch this Desktop in Action part 5 in stunning H.264 codec, streaming from QuickTime Streaming Server (Darwin Streaming Server).

QuickTime 7Watch the new stunning Desktop in Action, part 5 in H.264 codec.
(streaming, H.264 codec, QuickTime 7 Player required)

QuickTime 5Just for comparison, original Desktop in Action, part 5 uses Sorenson Video 3 codec.
(streaming, Sorenson Video 3 codec, QuickTime 5+ or QT Alternative is required)

H.264In this new H.264 version, the image is larger (at 640x400), instead of 480x300 (max) in previous example. Not just bigger and clearer image, but the file size is actually much smaller. It requires less bandwidth. H.264 is truly amazing.

QuickTime Player 7 is now available for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and Windows 2000 or later.
