How does OGM video files format come from?

Well,There has been someone who is kind of video hacker wanted to add an ogg vorbis audio 

track to a video track,he didn't wokr it out because of something going wrong with AVI container 

stucture,after he tried a lot,he found a way,which was by adding a video track to an ogg vorbis 

audio track,instead of adding an ogg vorbis audio track to a video track,and it worked great,and 

that is OGM file format.For example combining a video of DivX and an audio of AC3 together,

you'll get an AVI format file if you are using AVI container for them,or mp4 format if you are using 

quicktime container,or mkv format if you are using mkv container,or OGM format if you are using 

OGM container
