Testing MPG video file format

Testing mpg video file format with wmv file I converted to mpg using zamzar online conversion service. I am looking for best video format that will work on both PC’s and iPads when played on my blog. The MOV file seems to work as long as you have Quicktime installed on PC. This mpg file is smallest yet, so may be best from compression point of view if it works on PC and iPad.

Video Test of MOV file recorded on ipad

For some reason, when I recorded this little test video on my ipad and sent to my PC, it shows me upside down on my pc – though it plays fine on my ipad – bizzare. Oh well, right now I’m trying to find a video format for embedding into my blog that will play on both my pc and my ipad, so we’ll give this one a try.
