AJAX Video: I got a kick out of this; you may too. Can you figure out what’s going on? I’ve been checking through the HTML source and hitting some reference sites, and will put my best understanding in the comments, which you’re welcome to correct. …
First off thanks Ajaxian for sharing this! Boy my visitor counter skyrocketed over night. I got very good feedback and I will definitely improve this, add a NPAPI plug-in for audio support and add an ActiveX Base64 decoder for IE . Itâ€™s good to know how many people want an alternative media player based on the standards that we have. I welcome anybody who wants to contribute, just drop me a line.
“wolfenstein 5K” used xbm file format. It works in IE but is using 1 bit per pixel so black and white only.
Impressive demo though base64 XML is probably not the most bandwidth saving data type for video streaming.

Depending on Plugins will make it browser dependant. Right now your solution is based on standards. Once you go for plugins to add audio then I am afraid that not all browser.specially mobile based browsers won’t be able to use it.
