There are no license fee and no patent that we know of in matroska. So 
you are free to use it. We can help you test devices to make sure it 
follows the format philosophy and features as good as possible. And of 
course we are here to answer technical questions you may ask.

You can use Haali's splitter written in C as it's probably the most 
suitable for embedded device. Otherwise libebml+libmatroska is the 
official/most complete library.
