Best Video Player... and what format for videos?

Hi:
I just want to play some video clips in my Amiga. I've tried to use one that I've taked from Youtube, and that I've got in Mp4 or AVI. I've tried to play them and ACTION doesn't read it's format. I've downloaded a program for the PC, Oxelon Media Converter, and I can convert all the settings, but still I coudn't play it in the Amiga.
With Oxelon I can choose:
Media Format: A lot of them, including AVI of course.
Video Codec: Another lot, but I don't know which to select. I've got Mpeg1, Mpeg2... an a lot more.
And later I've got to select for video: Widht x Height, Frames/Second, Bitrate (kbits/sec), and in Audio: Stereo or mono or Surround, Sampling rate (it's at 44100), and Bitrate (kbits/sec).

Any suggestion about the format or about what Video player to use?
Thanks.

EDIT: I've been reading the ACTION instructions:
