Could you please keep that flaming down ? We know how the demuxer
code for mkv looks like, yes, it's horrible. But recently i
haven't seen any propaganda or anything alike from the matroska
people. And infact, it doesn't matter whether they actively
want to spread the use of mkv or not as long as they dont
force people to use it. Everyone should decide for himself whether
he likes/dislikes a certain format. Beside my intention for this
developer meeting was that everyone could talk about his projects
and recruit some help, so every project could advance further.
Be it mkv or nut or anything else.
