Enterprising hacker gets video playing on Optimus Mini Three

Scott Hanselman might not be the camera man of the century, but he does apparently have the coding chops to get some choppy video playback going on those teensy Optimus Mini Three screens. He set his Mini to watch his baby son's webcam (which he inexplicably swapped for a plane landing vid for demonstration purposes), and conjectures you could use all three buttons for watching live video if you so choose. After that he gets a tad bit nerdy on us all, but managed to get in the words "I think I'll do a Vista SideShow driver at some point" before we passed out from all the coder jargon. Please do, Scott! Peep the video of his video-enabled Optimus after the break, or check out the read link to see how it's done.
