My two favorite formats right now are QuickTime and FLV (Flash Video). Both
seem to work across platforms without too many problems. For those who have
a resource on campus that can handle Windows Media content, then that can
work as well, but I would also offer the content in one of the other formats
as well (QT or FLV).

The man you want to thank is Joe Humbert. Give him a pat on the back if you
see him at CSUN.

Take care,
