I can't see a difference between both media, video is way to low in resolution + video compression. Got any full resolution screen captures?

Double click and go to dailymotion with larger screen. Unless [M] server can hold the meg2 size, you will never going to have the resolution as like the real thing.

Anyone who watches HDTV will tell you the huge difference.

If I live within the city limit of Chicago or Cincinnati where on air HDTV is available, I would ditch my cable TV provider and go for free on air reception. In fact, I wouldn't even get a TV set but to use the PC & large screen LCD monitor instead.

I know the difference is huge, that's not what I'm on to, I just think that high-res pictures would do better for comparison then low-res movies (even if you double click them for supersize ).

Still at the mercy of the video cam resolutions; unless I use >720i video camera. Using a digital camera to take still picture from a vidio clip won't do it neither.

Screencapture, no external device. I once used Hypercam to record video's, but it's a real resource hog, your HDTV playback may start to struggle. You can record using the aditional OnAIR software?
