I agree with Sunny,

Use superior open source technology people will follow. These codecs are
available for all platforms (though may require a download) but we're
talking about people who want to see a Bsd talk.  I would prefer ogg
compression, but AAC is also possible, and would give us access to more
installations (one less codec to download).

BTW I used VLC on OSX to playback a video file for an installation that
had to run off an IBook, because Apple decided to cripple Quicktime and
remove the full screen playback function... bastards...
