wondering about longterm archiving

December 9, 2012, 05:38 PM,281187,28...

A digital video file is a bunch of 0's and 1's. Let's assume that the file data can be preserved for a very long time. Hard disk drives have short lives, but they can pass the data on to other storage media. I'm wondering what format (codec and container format) to make a digital video file today so it has the best chance of being readable 20, 50, or 100 years from now.
