I'm worried that this could also be a violation of YouTube's Terms of
Service , specifically this part:
"B. You may access User Submissions solely:
for your information and personal use;
as intended through the normal functionality of the YouTube Service; and
"Streaming" means a contemporaneous digital transmission of an audiovisual
work via the Internet from the YouTube Service to a user's device in such a
manner that the data is intended for real-time viewing and not intended to be
copied, stored, permanently downloaded, or redistributed by the user.
Accessing User Videos for any purpose or in any manner other than Streaming is
expressly prohibited. User Videos are made available "as is.""
I'm not a lawyer, but this would mean that even downloading the content
would be illegal.
On the other hand, OLPC may have the weight to approach Google with a
teacher-made list of content for them to allow us to encode into ogg?. It may
be far-off but I'm sure they have at least experimented with Ogg.
I've also heard from Chris Hoffman himself that Ogg Theora will be supported
natively by firefox in the short term, and it looks like it's already in the
nightly builds !
