I did find Theora. Has anyone used this before? If so, what was your experience with it?

I've never used Theora or libvpx (the VP8 codec library) directly. I've only used them through FFmpeg/libavcodec/libavformat, but it's easy enough once you get over the first (fairly large) hurdles (if you're new to video/audio encoding/decoding, it takes a bit of work to get used to how things work and exactly what's needed and why). I've been pretty happy with VP8 and Vorbis (quality/size wise), and I like/am comfortable with FFmpeg.

I'm surprised someone hasn't patented breathing. We can only hope that big-business money mongers will eventually realize
that inhibiting progress like this is just shooting themselves in the feet.
FYI: Bink is really easy to implement, I recommend it if you've got the $8,500 in your budget.
