Agreed. It's a windows-only solution (as I pointed out). However, the encoder is free for personal use and the quality is great. I personally prefer h.264 myself. It's a standard. VC1 is not.

I actually don't think VC1 is a good idea at all, mostly because it's
hard to find a good encoder you don't have to pay through the nose
for, and if you're not using a Windows machine, you're pretty much out
of luck if you want to play it.
