@evilc
i used a preset option for uploading to vimeo which sets it just right for it...though it doesnt make a file for me (to my pc that is) but i made one anyway. and yeah saved a fair few Mb's, must admit though, visually, i see no difference...

@snowmonco
to be fair i would if it fitted in the back! its only a fiat panda. also im in israel - no rain - no mud, dust i can wipe off so its not to bad.

I thought the first version looked fine. It only needs to look good and be playable on vimeo. To my eyes the quality looked the same. Who downloads for keeps ?

You're excused in that case, a Panda and something that deserve to be called a trunk are two antagonic things :)
And a roof rack? That would put things where they belong. Myself, I'm thinking of using my snowboard rack, essentially for short trips, to see if it will fit the mountainboard but I've been lazy.

It does, though it maybe isn't telling you where it is. It is not possible to "render to the internet".

Visually, you may not see much difference, but as I said, you have made the file smaller and kept the same quality. If you upped the "bitrate" or "quality" settings you would probably see an increase in quality, but the file size would go back up again.
Also, if you have appropriate hardware (ie an nVidia or ATI graphics card), the render speed for H.264 would probably be quite a bit quicker as the card would do the encode for you.
Do you see any difference in quality between the source clips and the final video? That is where you would see a big difference between MPEG2 and MPEG4 -with MPEG2 in order to achieve no noticeable loss in quality, the file would probably have to be quite a bit larger than an H.264 equivalent.
Also, seeing as your cameral probably shoots in H.264 (eg GoPro cameras do), it just makes more sense.
