Yeah I agree. Very easy to use. But the trailers need to be of higher definition.

I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this but if you download the source video for some Google videos (using the 'Google Videos as AVI' Firefox extension, for example), they are often of higher quality. The Google format/viewer actually degrades source quality, sometimes considerably.

A lot depends on what they converted *from*... if you give someone an H264-compressed or AVI-compressed video and then convert it to On2 or Sorenson Sparc for widespread viewability, then you've got double-compression going on. It's always best to compress directly from a raw, high-fidelity source file.

It looks like this trailers compilation is somehow officially partnered by Google... so they ought to demand good quality, I think... but it could be a Google engineer preferred speed over quality here :)
