Note that ogv is not only useful for Cortado, but HTML5 in Firefox.

It would be absolutely brilliant to see you share presets with Transmageddon and Arista (which already have a common format):

Notes on Usage: When a user only need is to cut or mix multiple video files with other source audio and then export all without transcoding and quality loss at all!

P.S: Will be great OpenShot to support also muxing/demuxing of MKV tracks: video/audio/subtitles.
