Dear Igor,

unfortunately i have little time left to invest into matroska right now. 
I forward this email to matroska-devel AT lists DOT matroska DOT org, 
our official developer email list. I hope somebody there can help you, 
especially Mike 'Haali' Matsnev who is also from Russia and a real 
master of matroska. Please subscribe to this list and direct all 
requests to there in future, rather than mailing individual members of 
the team.
