mencoder's cbr mp3 files work well with linux palyers, but there were
several reports about crashing/nonworking win32 playback... STFA

probably it will... but i'm personally not too interested in this
vorbis-in-ogg-in-vorbis-in-avi-in-avi-in-wtf mess...
albeu worked a lot to get this mess working, with more or less succes,s but
he's away now for some months... so volunteers needed

it's not only undocumented, but there are several incompatible versions out

only problems, i can't see the advantages of .ogg
vorbis audio may be good, but the .ogg as container is a bad choice

i've heard several names and seen several dlls and samples...
but not enough samples to worth to care...
(i've access to several sites with movies but no one of them has films in
.ogm/ogg/vorbis-in-.avi files - so i'm pretty sure its' only used by newbies)
