I can just copy my answer from the comment:
Canon SLRs encode video using h.264 - use of Magic Lantern will give you control over the bitrate which is not available by default. The standard Canon codec is available on any spec sheet for Canon cameras - such as the 700D or 5D MK III (my 5D MK II also uses h.264)
Go to Specifications -> file type for the codec information.
