Anyone that works is good.

I personally prefer the Matroska format ("-f matroska" or .mkv) as its in wide 
use these days, very flexible - it can carry a large variety of audio and video 
formats - it's efficient in space, and free of patents and royalty fees as far 
as I know. It's a clear winner for me. Not every player however supports the 
Matroska format, but the applications and players I do care about (i.e. vlc and 
mpv) handle it well.
