hi guys, i'd like to have your opinion on using ogm or mkv containers for theora videos. since you recommend ogg containers for theora and vorbis officially i've been insisting on using .ogg. but for example eightsoft put ogm instead of ogg for theora on the last build of "super" and i send an e-mail to them about this issue. and i didn't get the whole idea on the explaination of ogm subject at wikipedia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogg_Media i only know this http://www.xiph.org/container/ogm.html

i am doing several art projects and i'd like to distribute the free video and audio content just with theora/vorbis codecs using ogg. one of the most important conceptual part of my projects are using/supporting true free standards. so i am very much interested about your opinion on ogm and mkv. i know this mailing list usually on technical issues and i am not a coder but i am very much interested in what xiph does and i follow your list. native firefox support is going to be great for theora and i am waiting it to be launched to share the art projects i have doing with groups of art students for 3 years. but we need more end user tools to (not for coders) to be able to use theora more effectively. i will write another e-mail about one particular issue i am confronted if anybody is interested.
