I have some video footage from a digital camera and would like it on a website.

What formats should videos be saved as and if there is any other information i should know/take into account

I'm not a video guy, but I've done my share of online video. Convert it to a flash video file (.flv) and play it through a video player made in Flash (.swf)

If you have Adobe Flash, this is pretty straight forward. There should be a flash video converter software bundled with it as well.

JW Player is a good one to use for flv videos. Just make sure your videos are compressed small as video streaming uses your server's CPU. Usually you are only allowed 5% usage per month so be careful. If your doing loads of videos you might want to get a dedicated server.
