this varies, Sorenson 3 is excellent but tends to be very cpu intensive
and compression is of course slow. These days I'm relying a lot on
apples mpeg4 because it is quite good, but also because it is ISMA
compliant and helps get round some of the standards wars that could
threaten videoblogging. also makes it trivial to pump out material for
a mobile phone, a streaming server, and for progressive as they are all
mpeg4 standards and all available within quicktime pro.

i used to use Cleaner all the time. but it is expensive and apart from
some fancier stuff i like the production flow: shoot, capture, export,
publish. less tools in there the better.
