Hi John, thanks for chiming in...

It's better to really visualize this, so I put up three screen shots in
flash at

Not sure I understand you. Do it all in html? Why would I?
No, I need to do it in flash or director because I want to reproduce the
interactive environment on the CD. (see the screen shots)

The video, as you'll see from the screen shots, is *the* main element of
the CD.

There's a lot of video. They demonstrate the massage technique. And it has
to stream well. So I guess I'm leaning towards using flash for the menu
screens - ie. the whole website aspect, and poping up a Real window for the
video clips & background music/narration.

Does this sound feasible?

The original idea was to create a demo of the CD on the web for marketing
purposes. But now, we're leaning towards putting the whole thing on the
web. In other words, a *web application*. Skip the CD distribution costs;
let 'em buy it and *use* it directly from the web.

Has anyone else done a real web application like this?
