I'm not a serious filmmaker ... I just take family clips to share on Flickr. Right now, I have my GH2 set to Motion JPEG, HD for a couple of reasons: 1) Easy to upload right to Flickr. 2) I don't have software to convert the AVCHD format. * I have been finding that the video files from the GH2 are not being converted well to Flickr. There is a lot of flickering and pixellation of the video. Here is an example: <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="225" data="http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=71377" classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"> <param name="flashvars" value="intl_lang=en-us&photo_secret=6ddee19ee2&photo_id=5611053817"></param> <param name="movie" value="http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=71377"></param> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/video/stewart.swf?v=71377" bgcolor="#000000" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="intl_lang=en-us&photo_secret=6ddee19ee2&photo_id=5611053817" height="225" width="400"></embed></object> I was curious and uploaded the same clips to YouTube. It's slightly better there, especially if you watch it in the 720 HD mode, but still nothing like the original viewed on the PC using Quicktime or VLC.

Is it a problem with the codec being used, maybe? * Not because I'm too cheap to buy it ... I have an older non-Intel Mac and the majority of the programs available don't run on the PowerPC chipset.
