Which is the best method - first make an  avi file and then
convert it for instance for mpeg?.Have any other tips for videos/web?. Thanks!

Part of the answer depends on what you want to do

The best compression method is one your users won't notice.  Now what that is partly depends on who your users are, but some factors you should consider are:

1. Is it streaming ? (This allows users to see part of the file, while the rest is still being downloaded)

2. Is a plug-in required ? (Not all your users will have it, especially if you pick a less well known system)

and of course

3. How big is the file

Any solution will be a compromise of the above.

Having surfed a fair amount, the best sites with video IMHO (which is of course subjective) is from real networks.  I'd base this assessment on the above factors - the answers to which are:
#1 - Yes
#2 - Yes (bad that one is required), but 40m people have the downloaded the plug-in, and it's the most common streaming technique in use.
#3 - Yes seems at least as good as the alternatives
and #4, it's the least disconcerting when you play on the site.
