Re: Discontent with LiveContent

I didn't look at the final 1.0 but only at a release candidate, so I may not be 100% correct, but as an Open Clip Art Library developer I specifically looked for it on the CD and definitely the browsing interface was in the pre-installed Firefox bookmarks so I see no reason to complain about that. Yes, it would be nicer to have the content available for offline use, but I can understand: 1) there is not enough space on the disc for +100MB of clipart images because of OpenOffice.org and 2) we (OCAL) failed for quite some time to produce a proper up-to-date package.

Why not make a LiveDVD, then? DVD's would be much more suited for "media" and "content" oriented LiveDisk projects. Granted not everyone has access to highspeed internet connections to download and burn these images, but a distribution channel I'm sure could be set up. Even in a DVD there's room for all of OOo with all and its lang-packs (so every language the distro supports also has a corresponding OOo language and resource... Not to mention it opens up the possibility to include so much more content (video, audio, writings, pictures, etc)

One thingI didn't like was the link to blip.tv, where the user can access CC licensed content but can't use it from the LiveContent CD because the content in in Flash format...

Doesn't it include GNASH? The latest release supports rather well video playback from on-line sources such as YouTube and GoogleVideo, it'd only make sense to make sure it also played nice with the video player on the sites the Disk links to... Or at least let the Gnash developers know of these so they could broaden their test cases.
