Greetings Christian,
    Currently I'm in the design phase for a computer video game engine. 
Like most game engines, this one will too feature cinematics and 
therefore I needed a container. Matroska is the only open source 
container that looks mature and rather solid, I'm however willing to dig 
through source to find out how to work it. I'll come on the channel for 
sure if i need some help.
