Digital video: codecs and containers (wrappers)
An excellent and brief overview of video formats - meaning codecs and wrappers/containers as of late 2008.
By Gizmodo. For example: Apple's MOV is a wrapper specification, not a codec. They omit DV (used in camcorder tapes) and the formats Apple uses in their pro video editing packages but it's as good as anything I've seen.
