@ Erik. 
I wish you all the best with your project. I was teaching computer-courses
in youth centers back in the 80. It is allways a joy to see youth that have
aggressions due to their social background getting a perspective. I think it
is very important to give youth a place to be, something to do they enjoy
and to try creating new fields of interest with them. :-)

The technical aspect of what you are trying to do wakes my interest, too.
How do you want to deliver your media? As a download or streamed? I have
been trying to display media (.mpg video) from the Web in a Stack.
Has anyone succeded streaming video directly into rev, without the need of
downloading the whole File? In my teststack the player refused playing the
video/audio until the file was completely in cache.

@Lui: Coding can be lots of fun don´t get frustrated if you get stuck
sometimes ( I guess all of us do/did sometimes) If you want to learn more
about Rev, the Revolution Newbies board:

is also great resource.
You might want to take a look at the usercontributions section of runrev,
