Thanks for the pointer, 
I thought I'd cut my teeth so to speak with the physical files first. 
I've had quite a lot of past experience programing experimental software
here at the Uni that gathers data in real time to 2 dimensional data sets
quite similar in fact to the way avi video files are stored. Once I feel 
comfortable with those I'll brace myself ready for Theora itself<BG>.

Thanks again for the hints.

Best Regards
