I'm trying to convert some video files on Linux which can be played on what I assume is a default installation of Windows XP. I don't have access to the machine they will be played on, and the user who will play them doesn't have admin rights to install new codecs or media players.
I have tried .mpeg, which didn't work. I assume .wmv would be a possibility, but I'm finding it difficult to find a way to convert .mpeg to .wmv on Linux.
Are there other media formats which should be playable on a default installation of Windows XP?
