Animoto -> Second Life

Animoto, a Web based application that takes a bunch of your photos and turns them into a video, now allows you to download your videos as MP4 files, meaning that in theory that you can stream them in-world. See the 'Animoto Downloads' section of the FAQ for details.

I say 'in theory' because although the downloaded files play fine in Quicktime locally, I haven't yet worked out how to convince my Dreamhost streaming server to correctly serve them over RTSP :-(. I'm not sure if that is because they are not correctly hinted or something else?? Has anyone else got this to work?
