    OGM is just a container so a good bit of the time you may find you can simply remux. Other times though you will not be able to: before the rise of MKV people would use this as a superior alternative to AVI (especially in anime circles) not only for half decent subtitle support but because the video formats supported were less of a kludge than for AVI (which supports very little if you stick to the spec).

    One demuxer:

    Muxing into AVI is easy enough but in case you do not have one:
