I create videos with Windows Movie Maker.

My question is when I finish videos, it ask me to choose from many options in "other settings"

Video for pocket PC 218
Video for pocket PC 143
Video for pocket PC full 218
High quality video large
High quality video small
local playback 2.1
local playback 1.5
lan 1
lan 786
broadband 512
broadband 340
broadband 150
Dial up 38
DV-AVI pal
high quality video pal
video for local playback 2.1
video for local playback 1.5

I upload this video in sites like youtube, myspace(video), yahoo(video), and similar.

So can someone tell me what is the best for me, please?

Thank you in advance.

Think future, use highest possible resolution e.t.c. , trust youtubes to keep the original size, trust youtubes to down-size it the best possible way. Your video may end up on a big screen in a busy street in a big city with adwords on it and thousands of views.

To get a 10 minute video to comply with YouTube's 100mb limit, I normally use 1.5 or 2.1 on Movie Maker.

There''s an option to make it X amount of MB's. You may also want to look at Windows Media Encoder which will give you lot more options than Movie Maker. Assuming the video is from a mini-DV cam be sure to export your edited video as DV-AVI from Movie Maker if you intend to import it into any other application. You'll also want to do this with any footage you want to keep for possible future projects.
