My company is soliciting entries for a contest that's kind of like the Jolt awards. Companies are asked to send evidence of what makes them special, including videos.
Because I'm the tech guy, I've been asked to write up instructions for submitting videos -- specifically what format(s) we accept. All that really matters is that people in various cities are able to open the files and watch it on their computers (a mix of OSX and Windows).
What format(s) should I require? Should I specify the container, codec, or both?
