is the compression customisable by the user? multiple format is ok but
relies on a very limited notion of delivery. it assumes that we're
putting up simple video (sound + image track). It would be good to use
a service like this for interactive work in QT (for example) where qt
is the only outcome but where compression will not break things like
sprite tracks and so on.

capture, set in and out point. add credit sequence. post to blog (which
could compress at same time or compresses then connects to server).
allows standard entry of stuff into yor blog template.
