This should be pretty straightforward in Rev and would be very easy  
to prototype.  Do you have a trial version of Rev right now?

First question - When you say that you want to link movies together  
do you want a Table of Contents or do you want to present one movie  
and then provide a link to another after it finishes playing?

I too am waiting for Kagi support.  I've seen it implemented in other  
dev environments and the purchasing process is pretty slick.

I saw that Malte already responded to you about which is good since I  
have nothing relevant to add anyway :-)
