     This is a really great project.  I use OggPlay all the time on my 
Nokia E61i to play Vorbis and FLAC content, so this would be a great 

Sadly, I can't get it to run on the E61i.  It installs and starts just 
fine, but when attempting to play the Elephant's Dream demo that you 
posted, it just closes out with nothing happening.  The same goes for 
the OGV files I already had.

I don't have any experience programing for the S60 platform, but I'd be 
glad to do any amount of testing for you.  I'll likely be ordering the 
E72 in the coming weeks, and will report back my findings with it as well.

Thanks again for your efforts.
