making quicktime- or wmp-compatible videos?

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I'm baffled by codec chaos.  Thanks to xvidcap I can generate and view videos created with more different video/audio formats than I ever dreamed of.  But this same flexibility is also a bit of a nightmare, because nothing I create seems to be viewable by OS X or MSWin users with "plain vanilla" versions of their own os's players.  So what preferences settings--especially audio--are necessary to capture videos that can be played by quicktime and/or wmp?  Best if the output is something that OS X and MSWin users can see and hear without having to download codecs from some third party site . . .

    Thanks to anyone who can sort out this tower of Babel.
