[theora] Theora & Vorbis on your mobile phone

I have an implementation for Windows Mobile 5 phones, ie O2 Atoms, new 
IPaqs and Axims (plus a few others) (ie the ones running WM5 not the old 
ones which run PPC2002/2003). (I guess slightly more pocketpc's than 
strictly phones, but they are phones too)

Source is in svn, svn.xiph.org/trunk/oggdsf (same source as the desktop 
builds, just different build settings) (the oggcodecs_wm5 solution file)

Some early builds (not properly released yet), so expect bugs. I take no 
responsibility if you install these and something breaks!

The first one lets you seek in windows media player, but large files 
take a while to load, the second one there's no seeking but files load 
fast. That's one of the things to be ironed out before a proper release. 
Should also work over http (provided you have enough bandwidth) but 
that's not very polished... but works ok on my Atom using wifi to 
connect to my wireless router/adsl modem. I've done this in my own test 
apps, but I can't remember if i tried it in WMP yet.


Not sure if there's a midlet i know about. There is a java applet 
(cortado) that might be a starting point. I think there is a symbian 
player, i know the libraries at least work on symbian so there should be 
a player, but i'm not sure where, or what it's called.
