Good movie formats to embed in LaTeX and PDF

This should be an interesting thread to follow for those who embed movies in their LaTeX document. A fairly good discussion on comp.text.tex on what works and what doesn't with different multimedia file formats and different viewers on different platforms.
*hey, that's 3 differents in one sentence.

Essential reading for those who want to make some interactive PDFs. Just in case, you didn't know, the popular package to embed them is movie15 which allows you embed video and audio files.

Of course, your PDF file will then be humongous; no, no magic compression or size reduction will occur.
