I try to use open formats so I managed to use ogv files (ogg container,
theora video codec, vorbis audio codec from xiph foundation) streamed by
an Icecast server (you can see our site here :
http://mediatheque.st-etienne.archi.fr).
But you can use flash video files with flash video player such as
flowplayer. I think there are examples somewhere in the list archives.

As Diego Spano said, you can use the Unknown plugin, assign metadata and
modify the documenttext format. Have a look to GreenstoneWiki for more
informations about documenttext formats.

More than the filesize, the bitrates are important. It depends of course
on your bandwidth and the number of visitors.
