given that we seem to be entering an era where proprietary video formats and codecs (AVI, DivX, MOV, QT, etc.) are no longer the only thing on the table, i was wondering if anyone has figured out a simple
way of converting video files to the new open-source Ogg format using the Theora codec
i'm running a relatively clean debian 'sarge' and i've tried to do this using GStreamer (v. 0.8), but to no avail. the only other thing out there that seems to hold some promise is ffmpeg2theora
, but i can't seem to be able to compile it.
