I think his point is to use a neutral format (.mpg) so that it doesn't *matter* which viewer or plug-in the visitor uses. Don't lock your visitors in to Real, QuickTime, or Windows Media: use a neutral format (mpeg) that will work with any player.

    This is actually a valid argument. Only one of the three major players is needed to play mpg. However, because of the three formats you need all three players to view all downloaded files. Each player in turn tries to install their self as the default player. This forces the end user to manually choose the player of choice, or change the “folder options for each file type”.
