  Why HighDef XViD? Isn't DVD-R good enough? No.                            
  XViD is superior to MPEG-2 by a lot. At some bitrate (e.g. 4 mbit/s)      
  MPEG-2 can let 720x576/720x480 look good. XViD can let 1280x720 look      
  good at the very same video bitrate.                                      
  Compatibility is a lot smaller problem by now thanks to XBMC and modern   
  standalone players ... so why not let everyone enjoy true HDTV?
