Well, yes I was thinking about something like that drawing explaining
the relationship between demuxer, decoder etc that was in that book
chapter you wrote, and extending it with some more info, like the most
important places to look at if you wanted to add a new one to

Not sure if that live-CD thing will ever work out well - it also eats up
a lot of space on the CD while almost everyone will already have a
supported OS.
I would be more for a CD with lots of different packages (binary,
source, etc.) and some free video (there are some I find quite nice at
www.theforce.net, but I didn't really see any kind of license anywhere
:-( ).
