That's great! I'll try it immediately. I've been waiting for Theora
support to be added to a better player, as the example one seemed to
take too much CPU time to be practical on my machine (for decently sized
movies). Ever since I heard of Theora, I've been excited to see how
it'll compare to MPEG4 video.
By the way, did you notice that the video in the example oggs in
<URL:http://www.theora.org/test/test.zip> doesn't play correctly with
the current example player? You have to re-encode the original source
material, so the bitstream format must have already changed
significantly since the example was encoded.
