Everyone seems to be posting cubes as their first render here so I might as well give it a try too.
You can download the movie in XviD/mp3lame format here:
High quality - 77MB
Medium quality - 30MB
Low quality - 10MB
To play these files you may need to download a compatible codec:
Xvid windows binaries from Nic
As far as I know it plays back without issues using MPlayer on linux.
If you have a high-speed internet connection you can stream it directly from Google Video using the following URL:
You can browse individual frames in full resolution and quality on BURP:

A little info:
I started working on this last weekend in attempt to learn how to use the sequencer in combination with distributed computing. It took about 6 hours to make and animate the 3030 frames, 140 days to render (2 with BURP, hehe). It’s a [email protected] video file rendered with the internal renderer in Blender.
One of the reasons for the extremely large rendertime is the level of detail (6) in the reflections as well as OSA being set to 16 and the use of radiosity - and of course the number of reflecting items in the scene…
There is no postpro except from what is directly available in Blender. The soundtrack has been added afterwards using MEncoder and everything was produced using merely opensource software.
A great thanks goes to the participants of BURP for helping out.
[Edit:] By request the image above has been changed to something that better represents the animation =)
