Depending on your use case WebM is also worth considering

Like, for example:

  • Much better compression (it's astonoshing what 21 years of additional research&development can achieve)
  • More than 256 colors (again, 1989 tech vs. 2010 tech)
  • Support for actual media player controls
  • Audio-Support
  • Webpages can load and display a small thumbnail, instead of having to load the whole damn thing (very much appreciated when i'm somewhere with a small bandwidth).

On a sidenote: If i were to do some sort of "show not-really-funny videos snippets all day long one after the other" platform(*), i'd most likely choose .m3u8 + .ts. Easy enough to dynamically create to m3u8 text files and (god forbid) even add a 5 second advertisement every few minutes into the stream.

(*) Let's call it "Flip/Flop" or something ;-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
