OK, I had a go at making a SMIL of Steven's Introduction :

<smil
   xmlns:qt="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/smilextensions"
   qt:autoplay="false"
   qt:time-slider="true"
   qt:immediate-instantiation="true"><!-- should not need this -->
   <head>
     <layout>
       <root-layout width="700" height="420" background-color="white"/>
       <region id="logo" left="0" top="0" width="160" height="80"/>
       <region id="movie" left="0" top="80" width="160" height="120"  
fit="fill"/>
       <region id="slide" left="160" top="0" width="540" height="420"/>
       <region id="title" left="0" top="200" width="160" height="220"/>
     </layout>
   </head>
   <body>
     <par>
       <img src="cocoon.jpg" region="logo" dur="00:04:26.12"/>
       <img src="title.jpg" region="title" dur="00:04:26.12"/>
       <seq>
         <img src="slide_01.jpg" region="slide" dur="00:00:28.16"/>
         <img src="slide_02.jpg" region="slide" dur="00:00:51.06"/>
         <img src="slide_03.jpg" region="slide" dur="00:00:34.26"/>
         <img src="slide_04.jpg" region="slide" dur="00:00:38.20"/>
         <img src="slide_05.jpg" region="slide" dur="00:01:49.04"/>
       </seq>
       <video  
src="http://apache.mirror.positive-internet.com/cocoon/events/gt2003/ 
videos/00-introduction.avi" region="movie" dur="00:04:26.12"/>
     </par>
   </body>
</smil>

It works beautifully when the .avi is a local file, but not when it is  
loaded over the net. I checked this in QT Player (entering the URL) and  
directly in Safari, and it also completely fails to play, even after  
having buffered it. No Audio, jerky video. I also tried saving the SMIL  
as a Composite, fast-start .mov (with external references), but still  
no go ....

So maybe the DivX codec is not so good after all :)

OK, so I could re-process the video so it would maybe work, but the  
whole idea was to re-use the existing files in different containers.
