Hi Tom,

Thanks for your interrest in matroska :)

There is no documentation for the moment for libmatroska. There are very 
basic examples of how to read/write EBML/Matroska data in the source 
code. For a bigger example you might have a look at mkvmerge or mkv.cpp 
in the VLC source code.

Otherwise you can use C parsers like the one from GStreamer or Haali's one.
