I don't think there's a lot more that can be done to make the videos look good and still stream quickly on a dialup, at least not with free/cheap software. The way these things work for low-bandwidth connections is by creating a smaller file. The Windows Media encoder deliberately creates only a "postage-stamp-size" video file when it's configured to create a modem-speed streamable file.
I think both RealVideo and WindowsMedia encoders can create a higher-quality low-bandwidth file, but you need to have an actual streaming-media server running to serve up that type file: RealServer or Windows Media Server. They aren't free, and don't come with our hosting plan. Don't have it for my own linux server either.
For movement analysis, people on lower-bandwith connections might prefer to just take the longer time to attempt to view the higher-bandwidth version. Or for best quality, the original MPEG files you posted. You also can right-click (or command-click on Mac) on the links and "save link target" to download the files and then play them locally.
Maybe we can all set up an EpicSki video server collective of sorts. A number of people might each have some server space. We've got some extra space and bandwidth for a couple more files; dchan has the server he's setting up, and slider offered some space too. So until there's a formaal EpicVideo server, we can probably as a community find places to put stuff like this up.
