Nope. Using the album artist tag doesn't make any difference. Hopefully it will be added in the next firmware update. All Apple needs to do is to allow sorting by album in cover flow, that's it.

You can use a PC-formatted iPod on a Mac (but not the other way around). However, you can only update the firmware in the iPod on a Mac if it's Mac formatted.

IMO, that video is actually not that bad, considering there are many fast moving scenes, which are not compression friendly. I've seen worse. :) C'mon, what do you expect for a streaming 320x240...
