I have a client who wants to have video he can play on a PDA or cell phone. What format would that be?

Thanks, Dave

3GP and/or mpeg4, depending on the cell phone or pda

Does the 3GP format from Quicktime work with phones & PDA's?
There are two codec choices: H263 & MPEG 4.
Is one more compatable than the other?

H.263 is a subset of MPEG-4 Simple Profile, and so is more compatible.

But 3GPP works on far from all PDA's. Honestly, you'll need to pick a format for the specific device to guarantee compatibility.
