Is there some alternative to PDF or PostScript, which is good for publishing documents written in LaTeX and support video and/or audio?

Maybe iTeX, described in this announcement from Knuth will do what you want (I haven't tried to use it myself). – Lev Bishop May 25 '11 at 21:15
HTML, also maybe using some Flash-based SW like the one on scribd.com, ..., I think that's it. PDF seems to be the best way. Why? What's your issue with it? – Martin Scharrer May 25 '11 at 21:16
I'm thinking about methods to publish text with video. – scdmb May 25 '11 at 21:18
@scdmb: PDF support that, see Is it possible to embed multimedia (audio or video)?. – Martin Scharrer May 25 '11 at 21:21

You do not have to drop the PDF format in order to have audio/video support. See this answer on how to embed a movie in a PDF with LaTeX.
