How and which format of video on a mobile application?

by MehdiBP / June 29, 2015 4:54 PM PDT

I need to know which video format is the most suitable for mobile applications? Considering that I need a format which does not turn my video to a super heavy video so I can have 5 second videos of exercises for 500kb each.
Appreciate your help

It is annoying to see that. I was hoping for a good condensed video format to reduce the size but nothing out there. Maybe we should start one Grin
