native Windows video formats

Postby qwertyuiop » Mon Nov 26, 2007 11:10 pm

Please what video format I should use to be sure a screensaver (made with a video and Screensaver Factory) run rightly under any Windows version?
I do not want to force a user to install any video codec.
What is the native video format:
AVI
MPEG-1
MPEG-2
WMV


thank you!

I guess WMV but it depends on what version. It would have to be pretty low to work with '98.
Both AVI and MPEG would require codecs.

Vista sems to play most of Video files without additional codecs. XP seems to play WMV and MPEG-2 without any need of special codecs. WMV is the safest way.
