    1. Please select 1920*1080 as Size(pix) and 30fps(NTSC)/25fps(PAL) as Frame Rate to get the best quality.

    2. WMV's codec numbers and version numbers are not in sync. The first version of WMV is WMV 7, the video codec is wmv1. The codec of WMV 8 is wmv2 and that of WMV 9 is wmv3. And the wvc1, which you can find in our video codec options, is the known as Windows Media Video 9 Advanced Profile. Since the version 9 is more sutiable for HD enjoyment, we recommend set wmv9 or wvc1 as the codec. Besides, the decoder for wvc1 is included in Windows Media Player 11, so if you have installed Windows Media Player 11/12 should support the codec.
