I would really appreciate it if someone could write a Description/Pros/Cons list on all of the most popular video compression types or post a link to a website with this information.

Right now the best seems to be h.264 but I really don't know. Most videos I have are xvid, although I see people switching to h.264. The xvid files have much larger filesize to have the same quality as the h.264. h.264 is MPG and xvid is AVI. So whats the difference between the format and the codec?

I'm just trying to clear all things up and trying to find the best video compression to use. h.264 (small) seems to be the best just because it works on my iPod without having to re-encode.
I'd still like a lil article tho. (teehee i'm sure this ain't the first time this question's been asked >.< )
