I have always used 'photo-jpeg'
Maybe try that?

For those on osx:
Unfortunately handbrake does not compress for that.
I get students to compress from FCP or iMovie on the mac. Also apparently the new FCP x requires compressor (extra 50$) to compress to pjpeg. I am also curious to know an open-souce compression solution on Mac optimized for gem playback if someone here might know. Preferably with the ease of handbrake.

My original video clips were in .MTS (panasonic, 1920 x 1080) format. I then converted them into .mp4 (Codecs: H.264, AAC) using Handbrake and then into .mov (Codecs: MPEG-4 Video) using MPEGstream.
