The only bad thing about h.264 is Winamp does not include support for that video codec. This means viewers have to download and install additional codecs so that they can view the content.

I think even VLC (that supports almost all the codecs) isn't able to play a nsv stream

Xine, Mplayer, Totem and VLC can all play NSV streams - all on linux. ( You just have to make sure that you have the appropriate codecs installed. )

As a side note to Jake,

Ubuntu Linux has been a total blast - its made using a computer fun again - not to mention all the great software that is available through the repository !

I'm getting the itch to try FreeBSD next, I was thinking about trying OpenSolaris - but SUN put some goofy licensing restrictions on it.

Yep, it will on linux or windows. It's sorta USA illegal.

On Ubuntu, find the gstreamer packages labeled “bad” and “ugly” and install them. That'll make totem etc.... work...

You can also go to medibuntu and install the debian package for all the windows codecs.
