Saw this href="http://uk.news.yahoo.com/040812/175/f06i1.html">item in the news today. I'm happy the BBC sees the sense in using open standards for their streaming systems. They experimented with Ogg for audio streams last year and have been helpful to me in the past when I've had problems getting stream URL's from their multimedia consoles (I can play Real content but I generally don't like having the plugins on my system). The project has already released code and you can get it at the Sourceforge project page. Way to go BBC!
