  2. None. Exact same format since WMA2. However the encoder has
    been optimized and quality is better. WMA9 now supports more
    encoding parameters like VBR, multi-channels, lossless and a
    mode optimized for voice. Of course, those new settings are
    not backward-compatible.

  4. Note that V9 has a better motion algorithm so it uses more CPU.
