Which video formats for universal viewing across browsers, tablettes and smartphones?

Need a quick help from those who are making user submitted video sites. I used uploadify to upload a mp4 video (directly from my handycam) and found that the format was visible neither in my Firefox (XP) nor in my Samsung Galaxy.

So the question is, in which format or formats I should convert the videos for universal viewing across all platforms. Any suggestion here ?

I understand that I can use ffmpeg for doing conversions.Thanks for your time.

H264 and WebM cover all browsers

Thanks a lot Ralphm. That helped a lot. Appreciated :smile:
