According to their latest news, this device will record video at 30 fps and at VGA resolution.  Also, the OLPC project is considering using content from WikiMedia, and video files at WikiMedia are stored in ogg theora format.  Have folks involved in the OLPC project communicated with people at Xiph about supporting development of theora?  It looks like OLPC is well funded, and would be in a position to do that.

I've not heard from any of them personally. Perhaps you could try to get 
a dialog going?

Note that at the current specs, the OLPC machine is going to have a lot 
of trouble doing realtime theora encoding. Might be possible to do 
something higher bitrate like the elphel camera does though.
