[thelist] Opinion on movieformats

I want to include 3 small movies (45sec max) in my webpage explaining a few
things by using video instead of text.

At the moment http://test.graciebarra.be has the little movies (click on the
3 small pictures), in quicktime format.

What format would you use?
Is quicktime a good choice? Someone said I'm excluding linux/unix and even
pc users, because most of them don't have quicktime installed.

Is there 1 format everyone can use no matter what computer/player? (mpeg
should be possible, but makes the movies way to big)

Or should I offer them in different formats and let the user choose which
one he wants to see?
