I haven't worked very much with GAP (Gimp Animation Plugin), it might provide 
it, but I doubt that GIMP is suited well as a general viweing application.  
Try some other movie viewer that can also play the format of your choice.

Hardly.  Somehow the data has to reach the other user's computer to be 
displayed there.  And in that moment you lose control over what's done with 
your data.  The only thing you can do is make it a bit harder for the 
determined and a lot less user friendly for the casual visitor of that web
