if so, i believe the easiest way is to convert them to wmv in a shitty quality.. since most pcs these days, auto-links video with wmp and stream them right away.. (and for those whom uses another os, they usually know how to configure it.)

like i said.. far from being helpfull..

the market of the site matters. the less tech-savvy they are, the better the option of shockwave flash-based video looks. wmv is good for streaming, and it's easiest to convert to, as all the tools for doing so come with windows. this shit is too easy to use. the quality of windows media sucks, though.

when you say it's in avi, what codec is the video in already? is it raw?

Do you want to stream or download the video?

Do you want generic easy access to the file (standard codec, crappy
compression factor)?

Or would you rather use a good codec (needs tech savvy or alternative media player to see)?

Flash video is not too bad given the size. WMV is fine but I'm not sure it works on Macs. Quicktime MPEG4 has a pretty good quality and the player is quite widespread. I suppose I don't need to say avoid realmedia like the plague. Simplest codec to use for download would be MPEG1 (but then you get a crappy quality).

Other than that, doom9.net has a lot of info on codecs and video, if you want to look for more efficient solutions, take a look.

Personally, I would rather have people download videos using one of the latest DivX codecs, or I would go with Flash.
