I think I've said all. If I say an average bitrate of 128kbps and vbr-mp3 , 
then if you read the text in the link you post , it is of course abr-mp3. And 
since ogg-vorbis sounds a lot better on the same bitrate , if there was a way 
to put it a/v-sync-safe in a container it would be the thing to use. That all 
depend highly on the video u use, since if you want to archieve some news 
from tv u didn't need a high-quality sound. 

And your question on how it plays on win: vbr-mp3 /abr-mp3 / ogg-vorbis /ac3 
was discussed a lot of times in the win-world ( look in the forum on 
doom9.org since doom9 ist the No. 1 ressource in the win-world. And I don't 
think this discussion is mplayer related, since it is to generally. But this 
are just my 2 cent ...
