is there any documentation available (or at least has any decision been
made on this yet) what the system layer for theora will exactly look
like? i guess it will be ogg, but afaik ogg itself is not very specific
on how to pack different media format streams into one ogg stream, how to
do a/v syncronization ... all the little details.

on the other hand there is already such a specification out there, called
"ogm" (originally derived from direct show filters which could pack
various audio/video formats into an ogg stream) which is already
supported by various tools (ogmutils, transcode (work in progress), xine,
...) - any chance that theora will use that format or a derivate of it?

thank you,
