We've had very positive responses to our use of Flash video on our website:

and in our online courses: http://www.justice.eku.edu/odems/sample1.asp

I'm in the process of working out the captioning for FLV now.

In terms of device accessibility, the more generic and non-proprietary the
format, the better. So, in that sense, MP3 and MPG would be the better bets.

We may start using video on our site, and I'm leaning towards using Flash
Video simply due to the consistency of flash across platforms.
