Nether QT or DivX come standard. And just IMO QT is SHIT.

Use DiVX or XViD anything that creates an ISO standard MPEG4 stream is good. If you want streaming media its QT, Real or WMV.

lol sorry just been down the bank enough to piss ne one off

WMV does work in the mac but you need to watch the audio codec you use.

DivX is probably better for cross compatibility. Works fine on *NIX based PC as well.
