Selecting the output file compression doesn't have any difference - script always returns and AVI file.

Video codecs used in the script are truly different for each specified output file compression. Only the movie extension differs.
When changing file extension to mpg, mov and wmv, movies do not play under Quicktime (10.1, Mac OS X 10.7.3). One needs to use another software like VLC to read the movie.

Not being able to open the movie directly with one click directly affects usability. Should we keep the AVI video container as it is the one supported by mencoder?

see http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/menc-feat-selecting-codec.html

"The AVI container is the native container format for MEncoder, which means that it's the one that is best handled, and the one for which MEncoder was designed. As noted above, other container formats are usable, but you may experience problems when using them."

We should keep what it is currently implemented for now (it is working) and maybe later replace the library used i.e. mencoder
