That's why i keep a copy of VideoLANclient (videolan.org) at hand. I'm 
always wondering why Quicktime seems to have a different kind of 
brightness correction for each and every codec - JPEG intermediate files 
seemed OK viewed "standalone", then too dark in the video editor (while 
looking OK in freeze-frame mode!), then the final video was too bright 
after converting to MPEG-4, then again OK as MPEG-1, but washed out when 

VideoLAN's display brightness didn't jump around nearly as much...

Heh. Thanks, nice to hear :) Did you check out JvS's Rusty #33? Now THAT 
is excellent video quality! And i couldn't help but chuckle at the blue 
robot "running away" in the end :)
