Oh, you really need a nice Web page in HTML5!

Nothing to worry about: we can do it with XMLHttpRequest and change
the HTTP headers, I think. So, we should be able to put a normal HTML5
Web page together. I'll see if I can work it out. :-)

Work is on its way. The Mozilla video element developers have done
some awesome progress and there may well be an extension to Skeleton
or a new OggIndex track. Not too sure yet. Watch this space!
