Question Converting video to Ogg / Theora


hi everyone,

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.

any ideas?

Maybe the best way is to post your compilation errors. Some of them have easy fixes.

I am having troubles with compiling ffmpeg 0.4.9pre1 and ffmpeg2theora too.

When I configure ffmpeg2theora I get this message:

configure: error: Library requirements (ogg >= 1.1 vorbis vorbisenc theora ) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
Any suggestions? Any help appreciated!!!
