Please watch in 1080p, otherwise the difference is mostly unnoticeable.

*Edit*: Mapmapping and Anisotropic filtering are now supported in vanilla Minecraft (1.7+). Also noticed Youtube lots the 1080p version...

I recorded this after noticing a lot of videos having lower quality than they should have. Anti aliasing and mipmapping lead to better video compression, and thus quality. The graininess you get otherwise prevents the encoder from actually preserving details, since it can't separate between noise and actual features of your video. It tries to preserve both, but it can only keep so much.

Not shown in the video is only anti aliasing. This is because it looks, when maxed out, almost the same as when you add mipmapping as well. However, Minecraft's anti aliasing is a much bigger hit on performance than mipmapping. I recommend you tune anti aliasing up to a reasonable level, and max out on mipmapping and anisotropic filtering.
