But unfortunately .ogm has Windows specific headers which place it outside
the Xiph spec ie is it really .ogg?. I stream .ogg based material that
contains both Vorbis and Theora in pure Xiph .ogg and constantly come across
the confusion the situation causes ordinary users. Personally I'd like to
see the "hacked" headers of .ogm brought into the Xiph fold so that .ogg
and .ogm could be interchangeable and splitters dual purpose ie just like
Illiminable's. But I'd also like the uptake of .oga for audio only files and
.ogv for video only files as with the use of .mpa .mpv .
Just my 2<insert your currency>'s worth.
