Flash is ubiquitous and works decently in-browser.
Nearly all of the Flash video out there is just a container for a  
known derivative of H.263, possibly even encoded with ffmpeg.
FLV can be played and transcoded without Macromedia's player, since  
it's mostly just H.263 (except when it's On2 VP6, but most of it isn't).
Google Video will let you download it in DivX anyway.
