A way to export/publish video with a lossless codec

It will be very great to export the video with a lossless codec in order to avoid poor quality :)

Thanks :)

Microsoft seems to have picked .wmv and .mp4 as the two codecs it will support going forward. A lossless codec uses up a lot of space and while I can see it being helpful for advanced users, the target audience for Movie Maker, in Microsoft's eyes, are novice users looking for the simplest solution. In addition, most source files from consumer camcorders and digital cameras are already going to be lossy compressed so you can't really gain back the missing information, just try to not lose more of it.

That being said, you can create custom profiles that increase the dimensions and/or bitrate to get better quality, in lieu of a lossless codec.

As for getting your suggestion seen by the Movie Maker team:
