MPEG4 video in OGG container is nothing but a hack without real specs, 
called OGM, and without any support from Xiph. None of the existing OGG 
streaming servers ( Icecast ) support this. You should definitely use 
DARWIN and the MP4 container for that, or at least matroska in native 
MPEG4 video mode ( not VfW mode ), if you manage to create a streaming 
server for it ;) .....
