What is a good media file type for Chrome, Firefox, etc.?
Nick talks about how an .mp4 is a good file type for Internet Explorer and Safari.
What would be a good file type to convert audio or video files if we wanted it optimized for Chrome or Firefox?

.mp4 is fine, it is just proprietary. The .ogg filetype is great and is supported by both Chrome and Firefox. There is a really great introduction to the benefits and drawbacks of the various video containers on Dive into HTML5.
Give the site a look, it has a bunch of other great info about HTML5 as well!
