Optimal Streaming video format & Encrypting video

I am not sure if this is the right forum,.So my apologies in advance

I have a web site which will be programmed in ASP , it has a databse of medical videos for teaching students & doctors... . I want to know.

1. What is the ideal format of the videos [ I was told that ordinary MPG4 wont work, but that seems illogical to me... in my pc version of this teaching program, I use Quick time as a player.& MPG 4 Also, .. what player is best suited to streaming video over the internet ....????

2. Also, for security, Is there a way to of Encrypting video so it cant be downloaded into cache ?

If you're a Microsoft shop (suggested by your use of ASP), I'd look at doing this with Windows Media. It also has a very good DRM system (although you have to use a limited set of features if you need Mac playback).
