WRT "file formats supported by which browsers",  you should also look at the
canPlayType() function on the HTMLMediaElement object itself, which you can
check at runtime.


I realize right now you just want to figure out the formats into which to
transcode!  Once you are confronted with a browser hitting your server, that
_should_ be the way to query the video tag and decide which URL to point it

For webOS we have a page listing the supported types and containers:
