ePub elements pulled from the internet?

I was wondering...

I know multimedia elements are possible in he .epub format. But is it possible to pull the content from online?

Say I wanted to include a flash video of an interview of the author but don´t want to have the actual file in the package. Is it possible to embed it as an external link?

I know. "But then you would have to be online to watch it and it wouldn´t work with hardware readers". True but the hardware readers on the marked today can´t display it anyway.

So, doable?

Read the last two comments here, I think this is what you are asking?:
