To save others from re-inventing the wheel, would it be possible to place some information and current status up on the "Projects" webpage.  See http://www.accessgrid.org/projects.  I would suggest placing it under media tools.

BTW, Is this OpenGL version cross platform?  As I would be interested in having a look at it.

Hi Andrew,

    I asked the same question a few months ago, looked up into VP code, 
and eventually decided to develop an OpenGL interface to deal with the 
videos in a 3d space, with different modes with various views, automatic 
layout algorithms, manual managing of the videos, and various filtering 
options on the videos up to some visual perceptual features.
    The new architecture developed should allow easily to add new layout 
algorithms, new interaction devices, and implement new filters to add to 
the current filter pipeline I have also been working on.
    My work on this is now over, since it is the end of my internship 
now here at the HIT Lab NZ, but this OpenGL version for VIC should be 
available soon, and I would be pleased to answer any question with this 
regards, and show you screenshots of this work.
