Hi
I am looking to create a website and my customer wants video content? From my reading it appears that there is not 1 video type that suits all browsers? What do you recommend i do?

i came up against that problem too, and in the end i just went with YouTube because its less hassle. and you get a little bonus in that you can rank the videos seperately in the SERPs.

I was thinking just that uploading to you tube and then letting that be pulled in, however will that work on all browsers?

its an iframe, so it should do. all the code that makes it run is at youtube's end.

If you want to embed the video directly on your site, there are numerous products that will serve up either Flash or HTML5 in their player depending upon the device being accessed. We have used JW Player for this.

I find Moyea Flash Video MX Pro a God-send. You convert your vids to flash, it gives you the code - if you need to use the iframe code, just grab the swf link for it. Works great and then you don't have to mess with 3rd party video hosts.
