How about ogg as a multimedia container format? 
It is not well supported, I'd assume, but if MPlayer would support it,
if it would be good, we would use it and p2p networks would start to
have .ogg files/containers, it wouldn't take soon when all other multimedia
programs would support it also.

I don't know if it is any good.

Some discrussion about it here:
