We need an English source so that we can verify the facts of this story. For example, the article says that Radiobras is streaming video using Ogg Vorbis, but as far as I can tell, Ogg Vorbis is an audio codec, and its video counterpart, Ogg Theora, is still in alpha. I've looked for an English source, but I cannot find one, so I'm going to move this off the main page until we can get one. Pingswept 21:17, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

I think that they are doing something like this.--Carlosar 11:17, 24 May 2005 (UTC)

They ask you to install the vlc plugins for Mozilla at their Help page.

Carlosar seems to be onto something. The TV stream (first link) appears to be XviD video and Vorbis audio in an Ogg container (the infamous OGM format?). No Theora that I could see. The container has a "ENCODER=VLC media player" comment. The four radio streams are MP3 coming from an Icecast 2.2.0 server. I don't know what the TV stream was being served from, it didn't give any headers other than the bare necessary. Imroy 20:38, 24 May 2005 (UTC)

I can try to ask them. What questions would you like to do? --Carlosar 22:38, 27 May 2005 (UTC)

The email for support is: suporte@radiobras.gov.br . I sugest we contact them. Some of you could send a email to the suport. (Note: I cannot guarantee that they you will answer case you write in English. I suppose they will, but I am not 100% sure. Case there is some problem you can send the questions to me and I can translate them to Portuguese.).--Carlosar 22:43, 27 May 2005 (UTC)
