Wikipedia has a great article explaining the ins and the outs of 16:9, 4:3 and even 2.39:1!

Andy Beach has published a great guide to video compression on the Peachpit Press.
"Video is the Internet these days and as the growing trend toward viewing video on mobile devices increases too, the attention is turning toward creating a good user experience for downloading and viewing that video. One of the keys to this is delivering video in the correct format with the proper compression for that delivery. Real World Video Compression is one of the first books on this topic to demystify the various approaches to compression. It begins by describing the basic concepts of video compression, explains why you might choose a particular compression tool over another, and covers important workflow practices."
