I am wondering if that is just for streaming media directly from SkyDrive without downloading. Here is what their site says ( I wonder if the 100MB limit is still true):
You can view H.264 (.mp4) and Windows*Media*Video (.wmv files) videos directly from SkyDrive in most web browsers. Other video formats can be uploaded to SkyDrive, but they might not play directly in a browser and might need to be downloaded to a computer. To play videos on SkyDrive in a web browser you might need to have Silverlight installed.

The videos you add to SkyDrive must be smaller than 100 MB.
