take a look at this please http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=te-HVN8y_QE&hd=1 .
Notice the embedded "logo" in the upper left corner? How blurry and pixelated it is?
This is the original image:
The stretching, blurring, pixelating etc. most likely comes from resizing the original video from 1920x1200 to 1280x720 and encoding it with h.264.
Can anyone tell me how I can prevent the blurring, unsharpening and pixelating and retain their original quality?
How do I exclude the logo from the whole encoding process and just slap it there in its original format and form?
