Craig, you seem to enjoy circular arguments.

Here is what I said originally, last Friday:

"In essence, what this Algolith product does is a clever pre-filtering,
before MPEG-2 encoding, as opposed to the more meat axe approach to
prefiltering you might see now."

This is EXACTLY what it does, in spite of the fact that you disagreed
your way full circle, until you came to the same conclusion, all the
while telling me that I'm wrong.

In addition to this, however, it appears to also accept compressed bit
streams, according to words in the manual.
