Tremendous news, Profound thanks James & the Sugar 0.108 Team!!

Aside: i haven't given up (yet) on a wider array of quality learning videos (from Internet-in-a-Box 2.0 etc) becoming playable on XO-1 in 2016 so many years later.  Issues you've well-documented @ http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_notes/13.2.7#Video_Playback .  But the truth will announce itself soon enough, as to how far volunteers get resampling key vids in suitable codecs :}

Good resolution and frame rate are essential.  Usability problems with
instructional video will block learning [1].  720p HD is a good
minimum.  You cannot easily use 720p HD on an XO-1 without degrading
frame rate.

Where instructional video is a requirement, please contact OLPC with
your next request for tender.
