btw. is ogg-muxing (i'm talking about ogg-containers not vorbis audio) +
corrections to the ogg-playing(it has problems)  planned?

or you think that that ogg with video thing is too undocumented and
mplayer won't support it?

i personally quite like the idea of using vorbis audio and ogg seems
like a good choice... are there any know problems with that ogg-format?
i thinks it's called oggds or what ( maybe because they were dshow


That's life for you, said McDunn.  Someone always waiting for someone 
who never comes home.  Always someone loving something more than that 
thing loves them.  And after awhile you want to destroy whatever 
that thing is, so it can't hurt you no more.
