Theora is based on VP3 which does an excelent job at low-bitrate 
encoding.  I'm not sure if VP3 would be appropriate for teleconfrencing 
though.  One thing that should be majory improved in Theora is video 
decoding speed.  Right now VP3 is useless beyond really low resolutions 
for playback on anything less than a 2 GHz P4
