I've found saving video in the old mpeg-1 (.mpg) format works fine & is
highly compatible because it works on older windows media player &
quicktime versions as well (ie. pc & mac).
File sizes are not as compact as newer codecs but it also isn't as
resource hungry on playback.
A good compressor (mac) for this is ffmpegX ->
> Well MPEG-4 should work across the board with recent releases of QT (v7)
> and WMP (v9).
> MPEG-2 will get you DVD quality, whereas MPEG-4 has been aimed at HDTV.
> Another option is DivX, the players for both are free and to encode DivX
> you need DivX Pro, which is about $20, although I don't know what the
> situation is with branding, distributing and suchlike.
