I would take a look at Kaltura, it's not so much a question of picking a
format that is appropriate for all different players as it is using a
streaming server that will allow derivative formats to be generated for
various clients. Kaltura seems to support this feature very well and we
have been using if for the last year. This is an open ended solution,
because as the formats and supported clients change, you can simply
generate the new derivative format and abandon the older format as time
The basic sizes and formats you describe are there, we generally configure
a few different sizes in flash and h.264 plus support iPad formats. The
viewer gracefully degrades to http streaming when flash capability is
