[OT] Making videos on a Mac

How do I make a video on a Mac that can be viewed on a PC?

It seems that whatever tool I use - QuickTime, Adobe Flash Video  
Encoder (CS3), IshowU, Flip4Mac - the ensuing video cannot be played  
universally on a PC, yet, if I get the same video, created on a Mac  
but converted to a .flv or a .wmv on a PC everyone seems to be able to  
play it.

I'm using a Powerbook with OS 10.5.8 with QT Pro (up to date).

The videos either won't play or they require a Quicktime download in  
order to play.

I want to keep it simple for my users and let them simply go to my web  
site and play the movie.

Why is this so complex on a Mac?  Is there no easy way?
