Playing a video on the web requires; the file format of video and the plug-in needed by the browser to play the video file. There are many different video formats like AVI, Flash Video, MPEG, etc. but video file format to use is decided on basis of the file size and picture quality. Different formats needs different plug-ins to play the video file and some plug-ins are installed on most PCs than others.

Physical size of video at which it is to be shown, also influence the video format to choose, as showing large video, needs larger video file size. But smaller file downloads faster needing less bandwidth. Hence a balance between a video size to show and video file size is needed.
