    which of the two formats are better in terms of quality? I know that WMV has better compression than MPEG but that doesn't really matter to me. All I want know is who has the better quality in the end? I already google it and found no answer.

    Mpeg2 is DVD compliant. WMV is not, so it all depends what you are actually doing with the files.

    Since seeing is believing why not try both and use the one that looks the best to you?

    For online streaming I really can't see it making that much difference, but I'd choose MPEG for compatibility reasons.

    Well, unless the site you wish to upload to has a restriction on files types, then my previous point still stands :)

    yea, there is no limit for the video size so I'll probably just choose mpeg eh?

    I was thinking for format wise, but yeah, MPEG sounds good to me.
