My understanding is that during the battle between the streaming
proprietaryware over the last decade there was one very clear winner:
flash / .flv.

If you can transcode your source to .flv, the vast bulk of viewers will
be able to eat it with their browser without additional installation of
anything other than the flash they already have.
