Ogg as transport layer for FLAC - reason?

hi,
is there any reason to use .ogg as container format for flac streams yet? file overhead is about 300k for a 30m flac-file, and flac is streamable itself. AFAIK there are no players out yet that support embedded flac streams ...
btw, when encoding a standard pcm wav file 44,1@16bit,2ch, i encountered the following screen output:

Code: [Select]
xyz.wav: WARNING, cannot write back seekpoints when encoding to Ogg yet


(encoding process)

Code: [Select]
xyz.ogg: ERROR writing  ReplayGain title tags
xyz.ogg: ERROR writing  ReplayGain album tags


so what would i make out of that? in addition, is there any possibility to manually set replaygain-level or adjust it later on?

bye
MS

currently, flac can't store metadata in oggflac files. so, there are no seekpoints, replaygain, tags etc. this renders oggflac quite useless. this will hopefully be fixed in the next release.

If you're just storing CD audio there's not really an advantage to putting it in Ogg.  The potential for Ogg FLAC is in streaming or muxing with other codecs in Ogg tools.

Is muxing already available (including playback decoding), or is it only a potential possibility?
