VLC on PC laptop, will it work to view shows if originally formatted on a MBA?

I've been trying to figure out if I'm able to play the HBO movies I formatted in MP4 using HB on my MBA and watch them on my p.c. laptop windows 7?

I noticed that each show/episode is opened using VLC player on my MBA, so would I therefore need to download VLC to my pc laptop to watch these shows on my pc or can windows media player play them without issue.

Is there a universal player that will read these episodes for MAC and PC? I'm very curious because I prefer to travel with my pc laptop on the road - the MBA is too heavy. Besides, I won't be in the office 'till next week to test this out. I left my laptop at work.

Thanks guys for your knowledge in this.
