Embedded Movies & Linux

Sorry chaps; a hoary old chestnut I know:
Wondering about trying to present the odd movie clip in a RunRev
on my Ubuntu boxes in the school . . .
Shall I embed AVI files and then . . . what?
Or shall I forgo RunRev and just convert everything to Real Player
(a format I heartily dislike) and then install Real Player (err, dragging
the PCs up 3 flights of stairs, plugging them into the internet, . . . ) ???
Cripes I'm looking forward to RR 4.0; and praying fervently to the
powers that be that one will be able to play movieClips in RR on
Linux without getting seriously bogged down, or even bu**ered
completely (and I don't mean 'margarine').
I wonder about using the web capabilities of RR 4.0, storing the
resulting files locally, and viewing them on Linux via either
Mozilla Firefox or a RunRev constructed browser.
I'm going to sit up all night and see what I can squeeze out of
Ubuntu 8.04 and RR 2.2.1 (actually a combination that in all
other respects is serving me extremely well indeed) and
a variety of clips.
Bye-the-bye, andbody fossicking around for Film stuff for
teaching purposes could do worse than go here:
there's an awful lot of nonsense, but some really quite
useful stuff as well.
I am also contemplating doing a "whole EFL thing" around
which is visually stunning, full of 'moral questions' and FREE.
