    Apart from the WMV HD website, Quicktime/H.264 website and DivX website, where can I find HD material on the net? (haven't been able to find any MPEG2 HD so far..)

    Thanks,

    Roy

    For net use mpeg2 is not very friendly simply down to it's inability to compress data compared to the same levels as the new breed of codecs.

    Most of the mpeg2 stuff that is talked about here and other places has been captured from US (and a few others) broadcast sources and distributed via usenet, it is in effect pirated material.

    There is quite a comprehensive list of legal video at http://www.highdefforum.com/showthread.php?t=6537. Although it does include WMV HD and DivX, there are some others which you have not mentioned.

    There are also MPEG2 files filmed with HDV camcorders. There are some MPEG2 samples at http://www.sonyhdvinfo.com/showthread.php?t=483, http://www.vasst.com/HDV/FX-1_images.htm and http://www.xtream.ne.jp/component/option,com_docman/task,cat_view/gid,54/Itemid,68 (registration required). You will need a player such as video Lan Client to play them and deinterlace them on playback.

    Various websites are making video from HDV available, compressed to WMV or DivX, such as http://www.luxmemories.lu/en/index.html, http://www.hd-channel.com/, http://www38.tok2.com/home/sansansan/600v1-.html and http://videocoverage.org/.

    Legal MPEG2 files not from HDV are rare, but as seen in the list, there are some at NASA's ftp://ftp.cmf.nrl.navy.mil/pub/iHDTV/. DVICO also hosts high quality TP MPEG2 files, shown on the list mentioned earlier, recorded from Korean HDTV, athough some files with movement suffer. You may need to install the DVICO player for this.
