well, it’s band-limited and hardly compressed, but within those limits it’s OK.  Whereas I seem to recall having trouble getting decent quality out of H.261 no matter what I did with it (but it has been *years* since I used H.261 for  anything, and it’s only because I am an old geezer that I used it at all).
