Matroska (.mkv) and .ogm. Especially .mkv if you really like completely open-sourced container formats
I haven't looked much into these but they are Win32 only aren't they?  Personally I want to encourage formats that are cross platform so that I, as a Linux user, can enjoy them as well.  A few Linux video players support the use of Win32 codecs but that's extra work for the user and I'm pretty sure that won't work on PPC.  I'm just going to leave it with avi and mpg for now but it can be easily changed later.

 
.mkv and .ogm were specifically made ot be open-sourced and cross-platform.  ESPECIALLY .mkv

Ok found a better set of websites to look at this time.  Looking at the codecs they support though the files could still be platform centric but that would be the fault of whoever encoded the mkv in the first place.  Almost all of the formats are ok so this isn't really a big deal.

  
Well, you'd need the playback decoder to be available for the platform you're on, but people generally use mpeg4 anyways so it's not a problem usually.
