Srikanth,The Theora (.ogv) format you are talking about, I don't think has a good quality, instead we should use Matroska (.mkv). Konarak Ratnakar.

Subha, What about the Indian English Community? Noopur, Thanks for the ideas, but one small suggestion. Format- Keep it OGV. We can't be promoting an open project with a closed format video no? Konark, Good to see young brains like you volunteering on this. Ashwin, Can I have a link please?
