What are the default video formats which can be played with a default XP installation?

I'm trying to convert some video files on Linux which can be played on what I assume is a default installation of Windows XP. I don't have access to the machine they will be played on, and the user who will play them doesn't have admin rights to install new codecs or media players.

"Microsoft has an extensive list in their knowledge-base detailing all of the codecs installed with Windows Media Player 9 & 10, the default for XP.

I would probably suggest one of the following:

WMV
Microsoft MPEG-4 (AKA VC1)
MJPEG"
