You can place standard video files on your website and people can download them or you can encode your video to Flash files.
Either way your hosting server should be able to help you with what you want to do.
The biggest problem with video on the web is bandwidth. Larger video files will/should give you better images but they take longer to "load" and people may not stay around while it loads to see your video.
Smaller files mean less quality but they load faster.
There are many options out there and you should be able to find a solution that works for you but work with the people hosting your site as they should know what you need or work with what you have.
I hope that helps you.
