There are many decoders on Windows for theora, the easiest for embeded
playback in webpages might be to use WMP and Illiminable or Radlight
or Fluendo for directshow or The Helix player (by Real) also has web
plugins. There is also a plugin for the RealPlayer itself.

On Linux with Firefox, Totem's plugin using both the GStreamer and
Xine backend works fine, as does VLC and Mplayer.
