i, personally, will choose mpg with high quality setting. since you just
want to process it, larger file shouldn't matter, right!?

i read somewhere in mplayer documentation, that h264 support in avi is
experimental. it will be played back normally in mplayer, but may be not on
other. is this statement obsolete now?

some of my x264 avi video cannot be played back on MPC-HC, so i was
thinking that it still true.
