But NUT is still vaporware: the spec is so ultra-wonderfully good that
the very ppl who wrote it do not seem to be able to come to the point
to have a working version of a muxer/demuxer that supports all the
things it claims to support (last time I checked, nutmerge only
supports MPEG4-ASP video, MP3, and vorbis).
Once NUT a working implementation of NUT is available, maybe it would
be meaningful to compare it to existing containers.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against NUT in general. I just
don't like when ppl claim smth I can't verify.
