If you're writing a custom player, you can detect that a new chain has
started by looking for the "beginning of stream" marker on the ogg
pages. When you get that, simply reset your decoder state and do
whatever you would do to start playing a new file. So, it's quite easy
to play a chained file from beginning to end, but it's a bit trickier
to seek on it.
A different way to merge files together is to interleave the ogg
pages, so that each file becomes a different audio track for
simultaneous playback. You can use a tool like oggz-merge to create
such a file. Players like xine, mplayer, and most things based on
GStreamer, DirectShow etc. will work. If you are writing your own
player, then you just need to set up a separate decoder for each track
and then mix the decoded output. You can demux based on the serialno
field in the ogg page header.
