First of all, that screen size is pretty good for displaying widescreen. Good choice.
The data rate is merely farther down the window. You didn't say what format or I would have posted a screen shot for you. Just scroll down on the Video tab.

Quicktime colors are washed out and lacks contrast.
Using video from a Canon XL H1 and Aspect HD, Windows Media looks great.
Excellent colors, contrast, and detail.
Any suggestions on how to get Flash to work and how to improve the colors in
>Quicktime colors are washed out and lacks contrast.
I *think* this has to do with settings in the QT player. Try Edit>Preferences>Movies>Use high quality... and see if it makes a difference.
Use Flash as input? Or export? Flash is not for import.
If you are trying to export and your system crashes, it might be this:
You really should be more specific so we don't have to guess what the problem might be.
