I've been making custom PC gaming videos for 5 years and still feel like an idiot. The problem is that i still have not figured out what are the golden standard audio/video codec combinations for containers.
For each container i would like to ask what are the 2 most effective audio/video codec combinations:
Like, for AVI i always did DIVX with LAME audio, for MP4 i used to include H.264 and AAC audio.
But i still feel stupid, give me at least 2 combinations for each container, will you?

mkv :- x264/AC3 or x264/AAC
These are some of my favourites
And by x264 you mean h.264 video created with the x264 encoder.
I usually create
avi with divx/xvid video and mp3 audio
mp4 with h264 video and aac audio
mkv with h264 video and ac3/dts audio
mpg with mpeg2 video and ac3 audio
mpg with mpeg1 video and mpa audio
wmv with wmv3 video and wma audio
You can divide codec/container combinations by distribution models.
DVD authoring - MPeg2 video with AC3 audio in VOB container
DVDR playback - divx/xvid video with mp3 audio in avi container
Blu-Ray authoring - Mpeg2/H.264/VC1 video with AC3/DTS/PCM audio in m2ts container
AVCHD disc authoring - Mpeg2/H.264/VC1 video with AC3 audio in MTS container
YouTube - h.264 video with AAC audio in a mp4 container
Post production asset exchange - Uncompressed/MPeg2/h.264 video with PCM audio in MXF* container
TV broadcast - MPeg2/h.264 video with AC3 audio as separate elementary streams or in MTS container.
* This is the SMPTE goal but currently MXF has different implementations (e.g. Sony vs Panasonic)Recommends: Kiva.org - Loans that change lives.
