just to mention: I have tested Nero Digital AVC and Cyberlink 
AVC/Moonlight AVC encoder, and there is a huge difference. While 
Cyberlink AVC just reaches DivX 6 quality, Nero Digital AVC/Ateme AVC is 
way beyond.
So before judging quality of AVC, try different codecs!

And furthermore: Nero Digital AVC could not be played back on linux/win 
  due to some missing features in ffmpeg - the only player is/was Nero 
ShowTime on Windows. Don´t know if the missing features already have 
been implemented in the last weeks, but players like vlc still can´t 
cope with encodings where all of the Nero Digital features have been 

With kind regards
