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 ;) .....
