This are great questions. All Windows computers come with the ability to
play AVI files (at least, outside of Rev). This article lists the default
Windows Media player will automatically download [certain supported] codecs
as required, but I don't think embedded AVIs (in Rev stacks) have this
I don't think there's any drawback to using AVI on Windows except for the
extra coding involved.
