OGM is an unspecified,discontinued container format made by an 
individual, and even worse it has no real specs. Both our main MKV 
creation tools, mkvmerge/mmg.exe and avi-mux GUI ( links in our download 
section ) can convert OGM files into MKVs in a fast and lossless 
process, and the resulting files will even be a bit smaller because MKV 
has a lot less overhead than OGM.
