Works for me on a Mac, but only because I installed Flip4Mac. I  
assume it will work on Win, don't know about Linux.

Generally we prefer something that can be played on Mac and Unix and  
Windows, if possible without any additional software. I think only  
MPEG fits that, and it even can be played back by Squeak. Flash  
movies work pretty well across platforms, too, that's what Google  
Video or YouTube use.
