H.264 from Mac to Web

One of the best video formats available today for all kinds of applications is H.264.

Because it’s a great lightweight (small file size) codec with superior quality. H.264’s most common use is for the web. I’m getting increasing requests from clients for deliverables based on H.264 with an MP4 wrapper to put on their web sites.
