Due to different browser compatibility and the long list of different formats, the best answer I can give is to take a look at Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) concerning HTML 5 support for the video. Here is the link to that page:

Hope this helps

Additionally, I would like to add that to ensure that most browsers can view a video there is a website that can take just about any format you have and convert it to the most compatible formats for browsers: http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/
