Via John Gruber, here is something I've wanted to know: which of the gazillion available encoding standards should I use when creating a screencast? The Apple Animation codec (at 16-bit colour, high quality) wins for quality at a relatively small file size, followed by H.264 (medium quality), which will play on iPods and makes an even smaller file, at the sacrifice of some image prettiness.
