Thanks for the reply.
Actually, H.264 doesn't require a MAC computer, I believe it was Apple who introduced it (at least that's where I first heard about it in Quicktime) . It's the H.264 Codec FMP4 that is in question. Codec's will run on both Windows and Mac. It is just a way of compressing video. H.264 FMP4 is basically a mpeg4 file using H.264 compression. By all accounts H.264 is a very good codec and recommended by many for high quality low file size.
Here again is the issue. The file that Easypano Tourweaver outputs is a H.264 FMP4 file with a .avi file extension. To view this file you need a codec that decompress the file. (I don't have one) and none of the common players I.E: Windows Media Player, Power DVD etc will play the file. So you need to convert it or find a codec that will allow you to use FMP4.
Now, the object of outputting in H.264 (if I'm not wrong) is so you can get a higher quality video file for playback on HD television as apposed to the very poor quality offered previously. Like my LCD HD TV is 1920x1080 and we would like to play better quality resolution tours through it.
Seems strange to me that Easypano introduced H.264 using the very odd FMP4 format when none of the common players can play it and none of the common encoders can convert it. Such as Adobe Premiere, MOVAVI, Ulead or Pinnacle. So I'm asking for instructions either from Easypano (who released it in the latest Tourweaver build) or anybody who has a quality workflow.
