Hi Bjoern,

Here are the codecs used in the various container formats.

AVI - MP43, MP3 - didnt work but dont know which container i can put this in
MKV - AVC, AAC - didnt work but uses same codecs as MP4 below
OGV - Theora, Vorbis
WEB - VP8, Vorbis

Is there not a reference media player on windows which i can say if it
plays there than it should play in LibO.
