Hi all,

A while back I wrote in about wanting a theora promotion video. Having a
few lazy minutes left in the day, I decided to do some coding to create
a small movie. However, I encountered two problems:
- The artwork completely &$@(%sses, but then again I'm no artist.
- How do you actually embed the movie into a SVG file? Otherwise I'd go
for HTML but a working example would be cool.

The attached program can be used to create a banner movie. It will
scroll the image you give it as the first argument over a smaller image
and then use ffmpeg2theora to create a theora movie from the sequence of

After extracting and installing ffmpeg2theora on your system, running:
./theora_banner.py theora_on_the_move.png

Should result in a small movie and a directory filled with images. The
movie looks horrible (again, I'm no artist) but the idea should be
clear. So if anybody can help me with artwork and a working theora in
SVG example, I'd be very pleased to trade for my page of code ;)
