I want to streamline video content on internet. What's the best way to compress my videos so that they will play correctly across different browers? I originally compressed using mpeg-4's and they werent compatable across the web. Mpeg-2's maybe? What works best?
MPEG-2 is definitely not the solution. MPEG-4 is much better for the web, but if you were having problems with that, then you should look into the following: use MPEG-1, which will guarantee compatibility, but offers the lowest quality at the highest bitrates; or use Sorenson Video 3 for mac users and Windows Media 9 for PC users, both of which offer excellent quality at nominal bitrates.
