Well my directshow filters (www.illiminable.com/ogg/) hope to be able to 
fulfil this goal.

Though they are a still a little way from acheiving it. There are some 
problems playing in some players which hasn't been resolved yet.

Though the majority of people have been sucessful, by installing these 
codecs... currently the major problem occurs only with window media player 9 
and 10... which unfortunately probably make up a large percentage of windos 
machines. But most people can install them and sucessfully play theora 
videos in an older version of wmp or a player like BSPlayer or MPC.

And yes, it would be nice to have this sorted by the time there is a theora 
beta.... now if only i could figure out how to put an extra 6 hours in every 
day it might get done more quickly :)
