Open letter to internet

Dear internet,

Please stop saying just “ogg” when referring to ogg theora. ogg itself is actually just a container which nobody should ever use except to put audio only, aka ogg vorbis, in it. Using ogg when referring its video component is creating a huge disservice to its audio equivalent because, compared to its video, ogg vorbis actually does make sense, has relatively good quality and supported by some (portable) media player.

It’s gotten worse with recent h264 vs theora buzz in html5 “recommended” video format war.  Please spare the poor, sad ogg vorbis from this stupid war.
