Regrettably, OGG is the worst supported container by FFMPEG/MPLAYER, but
also it has problems with timing (FireFOX is the only player where it works,
MPLAYER/VLC both fail ...). So let's ask the opposite question:

What is the killer argument against dropping OGG in favor of
WebM / Matroska / simplified Matroska or NUT ?

Note than I'm "suggesting" dropping of OGG only, not the Vorbis or
Theora codecs.

There used to be "NUT" also:


~~~ wow ~~~
