For Windows there is OggDS at the CVS. It could be expanded for Theora, 
but no one worked with it since it was checked as far as I can tell. We 
need OggDS working 100% I believe as the first step before writing a 
Theora DirectShow decoder filter. In any event I believe we should focus 
on having at least one full player that is capable of seeking and 
playing a beta-level, frozen bitstream format, running on an open 
platform preferrably. Do you agree? It is a lot of work to keep 
reformatting the platform specific stuff (like Directshow filters or 
VFW/QT plugins) before the lib api is frozen.
