Quicktime Quality

For some reason, Quicktime will choose the lowest quality stream when viewing video (by default.) This is particularly noticeable when you are watching DV footage since DV encoded avi’s have both a high quality and a low quality stream. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to watch the low quality stream on any modern computer, but at least it’s easy to fix.
