I am really interested in an alternative to the widely used flash
video-players. itheora does a really good job by integrating cortado
in an easy to use framework to allow the user to play the file either
in his own media player or the cortado applet. But the actual version
of Cortado has a really grave bug that makes playing some videos with
java 1.6 under GNU/Linux impossible. I created a bug report in the
flumotion bugtracking system but no one seems to care about it. The
last release seems  to be  older than  a year now and the last commit
to the code tree  was 9 months ago. Could it be that they just stopped
developing cortado? That would be really sad because I know no similar
solution for playing embedded videos without flash. (<video> was a
great idea but it doesn't seem to be usable anytime soon)
