As with the previous 14 movies, we tried to achieve optimum picture quality with a comparably low data rate. As in Video Number 14, the Divx 5.2.1 Pro codec is used. We are still waiting for Version 6 of the final codec, which is supposed to offer improved image quality. The older videos can be downloaded here . In addition, the file is compressed with a ZIP packer, making a 22 MB file available for download. A length of 4 minutes and 38 seconds, including stereo sound, makes for an average data rate of 4.7 MB/min or 79 kB/s.
