in QuickTime:

<embed src="movieone.mov" height="320" width="240"
QTNEXT1="<movietwo.mov>T<myself>" QTNEXT2="<moviethree.mov>T<myself>"
QTNEXT3="<moviefour.mov>T<myself>" controller="true"
autoplay="true"></embed>

you can string 256 of them together. one plays after the other. you
might need a space before the T, i'm not certain. there will be a lag
between each one, particularly if they're off the network. QT has been
able to do this since I think QT 3.

the T<myself> bit means target Myself. tells the plugin to play the
movie in the current plug in space.

so to do a simple verison of what described wold work best if:

1. all had same dimension
2. once i test flash in QT might be able to include flash
3. just put previous people's vids first, then add yours at the end.
