.flv .avi .m4v .mp3...Are you lost in the lingo and file format options?

Being self taught, it is easy to be clueless when people start throwing these terms around. I admit, I know what they are, but am not so sure why I need one over the other... I'll tell you what I DO know, and then perhaps the group can chime in on the rest.....

When I create my "masterycasts", I create them in two formats... Flash- (.flv) and Ipod format- (MPEG-4 or .m4v) The flash file runs very smoothly on the site, and the iPod format is necessary to be downloaded to the kids iPods. When you go to the site you will see the flash, and if you are signed in, you will see the download link to the .m4v file. The iPod file exists as Apple's intentional proprietary system. What are some of the advantages or places where the other formats are used? Why pick one over the other? What others have we left out? Why do we have to be familiar with the lingo and options?
