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.

OGG is horrible to work with. The software is out of date, buggy and obtuse—having no clean integration with existing workflows.


In reality, the OGG container format is really no better than the original FLV flash video container format. Both suck in their own ways. It doesn't matter how good the engine (codec) is, if the car has flat tyres, a thrashed gearbox** and no suspension, it'll run like a dog.

** Transmission in American speak.

Yeah, I did have that one, but then I though it was a little *too* obvious ;-) Then again I once had an argument with an American who would not believe that "dreamt" was the past participle of "dream" and is in fact interchangeable with "dreamed".
