The Wrappers

Blender can output to three different video wrapper formats: .AVI, .MOV and .MPEG. Although they have each evolved from their origins, these three are still associated in some people’s minds with Windows (AVI), Macintosh (MOV), and the Internet (MPEG). In reality, all computer systems have the ability to play all of these formats now, especially with tools like the free VLC video player, available at http://www.videolan.org/ and on the disc included with this book.

So the question becomes, “Who is most likely to see your video?” If you think that people with Windows will be your largest audience (most likely), you will want to use the .AVI wrapper. If it will be Mac people, use .MOV. For a general, platform-neutral experience, choose MPEG.
