If it is only meant to circulate around the Mac community, then you are pretty safe with MOV but if you want to put it in your PSP or any other non Apple portable device, then you are better off with MP4
    So it is just the container not the codec itself!
    Just be sure the s/w you choose is smart enough *not* to reencode. Don't assume it's doing the "right thing".

    The ffmpeg command I wrote does not reencode, both the video and audio streams are copied.

    Try it if you don't believe it!
