Hi Markus,

Yes, it helps a bit :)

Ok, just to make it clear, i don't need ogg vorbis unless i want to 
stream audio as an ogg vorbis stream. Do you know how small i can make 
compiled theora stuff? the source itself is some 100k big and i am not 
in the mood right now to dive in to compile stuff....

Thanks, ulrich
