This is very straightforward to do in something like LiveStage, but it would also be relatively easy to make a movie that would let someone enter urls and the movie would display these urls. in fact I've got a MA student now who is doing something like this (he's not quite there yet but check out http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/~dpwolf) and is certainly about to start loading remote movies into his movies. AS Eli notes, there is a lot that can or could be done. One of the interesting short term things would be, for example, to get David to make a simple scriptable movie where anyone could enter the 'permalinks' for 3 video objects to include them in their work. In other words make a 'sketch' tool that demonstrates an idea, let people use it and play with it, etc. I'd like to do this too, with a movie that loads two child movies and scripts the playback speed of each of the two child movies. I'll build this shortly (won't be for a couple of weeks, OS conference next week) but will let you all know when its available, what it does and how to use it. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
