I can see a browser-based interface for uploading previously recorded
and compressed content to a website, but I think it's going to be difficult
to do live recording that way. I guess you could write a java app, but
really, just helping with general live recording/streaming tools would 
be a better approach I think.

On the playback side however, I think you can do well by integrating
something like Fluendo's cortado applet for playback directly inside 
the content management system's webpages.


it already supports audio and video, and slide support is also planned.

Sounds like an excellent project. Good luck with it!
