;) .... from me neither, MP4 is pretty nice for what its made for.
About matroska, we currently have
RealVideo ( rv 10,20,30,40 = RV9 )
any VCM codec
any ACM codec
supported in matroska already, and in any combination and unlimited
number of tracks.
I know this all, in theory, could have been done with MOV also, but i
dont know of any existing software that actually does it ;) ?
About Arpi's rant( C++ ) : we have a nice working C lib now, made by
Ronald 'BBB' Bultje, in L-GPL. Its the base for his matroska gstreamer
plugin, and in gstreamer CVS.
