We are trying to do this with Sophie, building books you can interact
with, then publishing to a http server, then reading the book from
the http server in a Sophie authoring/reader application.
As pointed out you could do this in a browser plugin, but that's a
more complicated solution since that environment is complex (plugin,
vm, security etc) and sometimes broken like on the macintel
environment at the moment.
I'll point to some older movies we made, and at the moment we're
quite busy gearing up for an alpha release.
Lastly, we noticed that via quicktime integration we can enter a URI
for the quicktime readable media, local or remote and
get streaming video/audio which makes it feasible to playback movies/
audio from the server in a usable manner, quicktime and
a fast internet connection makes this quite transparent.
