I’ve been playing around with streaming media. Cortado looks like the best option. The other option is to convert video to flv using mencoder and play the video using an a open source flash player. The end result is something like Youtube. Below is my example, the next movie will include sound. Hopefully I’ll find someone to collaborate and they can do the voice overs.

This movie shows the Fedora Core OLPC firmware image running on windows using the QEMU emulator. If someone is interested in setting up the same thing I’ll put instructions up on the wiki soon.
