Those examples imply a GNU/Linux-based system, but the system most
likely to be used in the cases I cited are Windows-based.  I was hoping
for something like Edcast, but for Theora (rather than Vorbis).  VLC
Player is promising, but it uses libavcodec for Theora, and I think the
quality isn't as good, at least until they get to Theora 1.1 - are they
there yet?
