Ogg does have potential as a general container, especially for
streaming. I've been using Ogmtools to make ogms (oggs with VFWish
MPEG-4 video and Vorbis audio) for quite a while and playing them with
MPlayer, Xine, and a couple of Win32 players. It seems to be a de facto
standard of sorts, since there are several interoperable implementations.
Xiph is working on Ogg Theora and they'll eventually be working on Ogg
Tarkin. Hopefully, they'll define a generic way of putting video in Ogg.
The main advantage Quicktime would have over Ogg and Matroska is that it
is more standardized and widely implemented in the proprietary world.
