That depends on how you propose to send it.
Windows Media player accepts .asf, .asx, .wax, .wm, .wma, .wmd, .wmv, .wvx, .wmp, and .wmx
AVI is the prefered format if sending via email or file sharing and a simple install of VCL Player includes all codecs.

Watch movies & listen to music hassle-free
Download VLC Media Player
