Thank you, ogginfo returned:
Note: Stream 1 has serial number 0, which is legal but may cause problems with some tools.
New logical stream (#1, serial: 00000000): type vorbis
Vorbis headers parsed for stream 1, information follows...
Version: 0
Vendor: ffmpeg
Channels: 1
Rate: 22050

Nominal bitrate: 35.333000 kb/s
Upper bitrate not set
Lower bitrate not set
Vorbis stream 1:
	Total data length: 25835 bytes
	Playback length: 0m:06.338s
	Average bitrate: 32.606833 kb/s
Logical stream 1 ended
WARNING: illegally placed page(s) for logical stream 1
This indicates a corrupt Ogg file: Page found for stream after EOS flag.
WARNING: sequence number gap in stream 1. Got page 1 when expecting page 27. Indicates missing data.

`Playback length` is incorrect here - this is the length of the first concatenated file, this file consists of multiple Oggs.

So this is impossible to correctly concat Ogg with simple Javascript?
