OpenVZ Live MIgration Demo Video

I've been playing around the last day or two with installing GUI desktop environments and applications into a VPS. It can be a little tricky keeping a stock distro udev package from overwritting the vzdev package but I figured out a way around that... at least on Red Hat based distros. Anyway, I thought I'd use my new GUI VPS to demonstrate live migration.

You can find it here:

That page has an embedded flash video that is sized down to 800x600 (from 1024x768) at 500Kbit/sec video. The flash version isn't as clear as I'd like it to be but I do provide a link to the original video that is a 1024x768 .ogg video that is excellent quality.

Anyone have any suggestions for future videos? Do you prefer with sound/commentary... or the "type in an editor" window format?
