Hey thanks for your interest!
1) I am not 100% sure yet, but was strongly considering 640x480 MPEG-2.
You said that was non-gpl, which is ok. I mean, what negative
ramifications could result from that?
2) A photocell would work, although there is a small cost per unit with
those devices. Since there will already be a webcam, if someone was
well versed with motion or another video capture program, it would be
very simple for them to write a program, and much cheaper for us.

>>1)Video Selection and playback
>>Must be able to run under Via's EPIA VE5000 motherboard/cpu.
> what are the video stream properties? format, resolution, fps etc.
> the via boards are famous for their very poor video performance,
> but they (at least some of them) have hardware mpeg2 decoder.
> (which requires the use of some non-gpl libraries...)
> also, it will be connected to monitor, or tv?
>>2)Motion detection and program activation
>>The people will be sitting in predictable places. So one idea could be
>>to assume that certain markings will always be in an approximate area.
>>Lets say a big .X. would be painted on the wall, and if a person sat
>>there, they would cover the .X.. So the program could safely assume
>>that a person had entered the enclosed area and activate a program.
> so a simple photocell is far enough :)
