A Big Bunny Clip (no dialogue).
Video in Irish. Colm talks about his Erasmus experience in Spain.
We have Big Buck Bunny already as Smooth Stream
it is served as a smooth stream by various Microsoft partners, including Vertigo who initially made the Silverlight Media Framework - SMF - that we're using for playback
(now opensourced by Microsoft and called Microsoft Media Platform Player Framework with the hard to remember name MMPPF, probably renamed cause SMF also means Simple Machines Forum, a popular bulletin board system that also has some media playback capabilities)
also the BigBuckBunny is available pre-encoded at full quality as smooth streaming content from Microsoft together with The Elephants Dream so we might also install it in our server in the future (for now we don't need to since Vertigo's server seems to stream it fine)
a collection of smooth streams (including the big buck bunny) is here:
can also find the Big Buck Bunny movie in its original video format here, together with links to other opensource movies from the Blender project (Blender is a 3D rendering / movie creation opensource software app):
(note that Blender project movies also give the 3D assets so you could modify the whole movie in Blender if you have 3D animation experience with Blender)
BTW, I just found another collection of opensouce movies:

Hi Laura, here are the smooth stream URLs for your two videos:
the EU one didn't convert ok (just shows green color everywhere), will try it again later (tried to convert its MP4 version but they give a bigger one MP2 download that might convert better)
