I know this might sound like taking a trip to the moon, but I was just wondering if it would be possible to embed something like a "shortcode" (as in WordPress) into a video to pull live data from jQuery/Ajax using JSONP. Specifically, if it would be possible to update dynamically the current "font count" from Google fonts into the video like I posted (look at time index 0.33)

It would be super awesomesauce if the count on the video could match the Google Web Fonts collection (number of available fonts) in real-time without editing the video. Like I said, vaction on the moon anyone? Or is this actually possible?

We don't have anything that would let you overlay text like that, but perhaps tied with some other script/HTML you could have a CSS or animation overlay on top of the video that is triggered when the player reaches a certain timecode.

A vacation on the Moon sounds nice though.
