Browsing to find a hardware module that might handle real-time encoding of 
video in theora format is something that I can do.  Doing the port is out of 
my league.  Very sorry.  

According to http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS4405077268.html
"The DSP Stamp comes preinstalled with a serial bootloader and uClinux, and a 
development board is also available."  

I guess even if theora was ported to the DSP Stamp, there would also be the 
matter of connecting a video source to the development board to test the 
speed and quality of the compression.  I'm pretty clueless about that, too.

All I know is that compressing the video at the source, whether its a webcam 
or a camcorder, makes a lot of sense because it so greatly reduces the 
downstream requirements for network bandwidth and storage.
