    i just got ishowu and was wondering wot the best video format is when i record video from the web. something that can be played with other media players or something that can be converted easily.

    Well just stick to something like H.264 I guess. It has the best size to quality ratio. But it can take awhile to compress.

    Well before this it would've been a resounding get Visualhub or iSquint but since these two have since been discontinued I guess your only other option is the slightly more tedious but nonetheless equally powerful ffmpegx
