...you're behind the times. Many networks are using MPEG-4 for distribution and have been for awhile.
Well thank you for dragging me up to present day Mr. Friendly.
Maybe you could enlighten all of us on which locals are creating any non-mpeg2 content on their own?
Some details would help I guess.
So are they now producing their content in MPEG4 and then re-encoding to MPEG2? Or maybe DirecTV has installed local MPEG2-to-MPEG4 encoding equipment at the broadcasters facitily? Last time I checked the broadcasters had to broadcast MPEG2 if they wanted anyone to be able to actually use their broadcasts.
Seems rather unlikely that my local channels are going to cough up the money to pay for MPEG4 that is only useful to DirecTV and Dish Network. But, what do I know - I'm living in the 80's!
