I tried out the Crossover plugin demo last night with Apple's Quicktime 5 
player. It works great; I'd say it's well worth the cost for the full 

After installing the crossover software and then installing Quicktime,
you can run the Quicktime player by putting $HOME/crossover/bin in
your PATH, then running

to start it. It also works great as a plugin for Mozilla, Konqueror, and
a few other browsers.

I'm thinking of adopting Quicktime as the secondary format for the BLU
videos. The MPEG-1 streams ripped from VCD masters will still be the primary
online format I use; they play on any system, and can be burned back onto
VCD with GNU VCDImager.
