Specifying color is paramount to have good results. The video color space should at least be specified in the file metadata, these should include the following tags. The following values should be used if possible for the color space at encoding time.
We recommend the use of the yuv420p pixel format.

We recommend the use of MP4 as a container, H.264 as the video codec and AAC as the audio codec.
Other possible containers are : .mov, .m4v, .mkv, .avi
