Awesome timing.

For anyone that's interested, I'm going to spam this out here.. the
IMC-NYC video team is going to be encoding all of the Feb 15th war
protest footage in VP3, most of the audio is going to be archived in Ogg
Vorbis, and there's going to be a live breaking news Quicktime/VP3 video
stream accompanied by a Ogg Vorbis audio stream (same as video, but
lower bitrate).  All this is being done in anticipation of being able to
upgrade the archives to Ogg Theora down the road.. nyc.indymedia.org for
URLs, if you're interested in what's happening in the streets of NYC
this weekend.

So, just to confirm, we will be able to take this footage and convert it
to Ogg Theora down the road right?  This is pretty important to us, to
be able to archive all this video patent-free without having to
transcode it down the road..
