Why should every lecture be that large? I'm no expert but I've
downloaded realmedia lectures from http://www.aduni.org/courses/java/ at
around 50-100MB. I admit knowing nothing about video or audio codecs.

Maybe you could release audio only .ogg or .mp3 versions on
www.haifux.org. Releasing audio only versions with a tarball of that
lecture's slides could be a low bandwidth alternative.

The people at http://technetcast.ddj.com/ do this often, resulting in
3-10MB mp3 files.

I have a CD-burner and am willing to make CD copies for anyone for the
price of the media, or just being handed an empty CD.
