Please tell me the best current method for embedding/displaying audio and video files into a website using simple HTML &/or CSS.

I would like to embed audio and video files into a new website I am making. I would like them to show up with easy-to-navigate controls and I do not want the user to have to wait for the file to load to begin viewing or listening to it.
I would also like this to be as cross-browser compatible and as accessible as possible. Something that works for Firefox & Chrome but not IE is really not workable.
The files I am working with are MP3s for the audio and either M4V or MOV for the video. I can convert or compress these if necessary (& certainly would appreciate advice about this as well).
