Apple vs P2P video quality

Below is a quick comparison of video quality between files available on P2P networks and Apple’s videos from the iTunes Music Store. This is a scene from Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” video starring everyone’s favorite psycho Christopher Walken. The first one is an MPEG-1 video while the second one is from Apple. The latter is much better looking and can be viewed on a small-to-medium sized TV without too much degradation. For $2, you are assured of a minimum level of quality from Apple, while P2P quality tends to vary a lot; some P2P videos are simply awful and badly edited.
