The party was...umm, what I guess one expects for a party held at a 
bar.  IE loud, dim, and lots of people.  Not my scene usually, but 
hiding out in the back made it a bit quieter, and I got to spend some 
non-kid time(well, not counting fractions) with my wife. :-)

Seyret will have no more CPU usage than serving up any other big files - 
and if you host the files on an external site even less.

Overall, I find Seyret to be the best solution, but I'm having to 
customize it a bit for display as they tend to implement "cool" stuff 
that isn't neccessarily what you need for a business site.
