Multimedia, AV This one was accidentally deleted from the submission queue when it was first submitted some time ago, so I decided to keep it around for a slow news day (such as this one - dear lord, it's quiet). FFmpeg developer Mans penned down a number of crucial problems with the Ogg container format.

Yes, I agree about using MKV for Theora. In fact Mann does point out the merits of Matroska in the Generality point.

And as discussed in the article, I have also experienced issues with seeking in OGM taking a long time (in the order of seconds).

In addition, Matroska supports many other useful features such as file linking and ordered chapters, whereby different parts of different files can be linked together, to be played as one continuous file, or skipped to as chapters, from the same file(s).
