Now that I have the original file, I want to encode to mpeg4 for
streaming. How can I achieve the best quality for low bandwith (say 64k
and 128k), with the least amount of macroblocking?

I know there's no simple answer to this, but I'm wondering if anyone out
there has encoded for mpeg4 64/128k and been able to get good quality
with a minimal macroblocking effect?

Would using Sorensen provide better quality? How would I specify the
qtvideo to utilize Sorensen 3 ?
