Google turned up this link, but it seems to be a bit experimental:

In theory no. However, we have builds from the source after the license
was changed that you can use. Of course, that would be VP3 and not theora. :)

Note also that we're working on an RTP payload format for theora. You 
might be interested in reviewing/contributing/implementing if you're
working on conferencing stuff.
