If you actually have *any* compressed video with "no noticable (sic)  
artifacts" I'd love to see it, there just ain't no such animal. But I  
get what you mean, it looks good to you, which is all that really  
counts. :-)

Back to the question the OP was asking, which was how to avoid having  
to process his video in some way to use it on a portable device.

I think the consensus here is that such processing is pretty easy,  
and once set up can be pretty well automated. Certainly anyone who  
can get a Myth system working should have no problem with this.
