Theora / Vorbis ogg video/audio encoding? - Please Help

Hi there.....

Dose anyone have a faq or somthing for encoding a ogg file with Theora for video and Vorbis for audio?

At the moment I am using VLC wizard but i find that it is buffy and crashes a lot as well I am having some problems converting. VdubMod and AviDemux do nto support it.

Has anyone got a good app for creating these kind of files... pref with a gui?

Thanks in advance.

You could try Avidemux (Linux and Windows versions available).

I think Theora is only a container, you would have to choose a codec for video (and AFAIK theora is ok with Xvid, but doesn't work well with x264).

If you want best quality (but you need a good CPU) you'll have to go with x264 - and then a container like matroska or mp4.

If Xvid is ok, theora is nice because Vorbis is a great codec for audio.

Ogg is the container, Theora is the video codec. Unfortunately, avidemux doesn't handle them yet; ffdshow's VFW does, but as Theora is unversioned, there are still occasional incompatible changes to the decoding, though not as often as Snow.

My own favourite for Theora/Vorbis files is ffmpeg2theora

http://www.v2v.cc/~j/ffmpeg2theora/

It is only commandline (there is talk of a GUI in the works on the
Theora-Dev list) but if you set up a simple bat file ie

c:\path2\ffmpeg2theora -v 10 -V 250 -S 0 -K 300 -x 352 -y 288 --aspect 16:9 -a 1 -A 24 -c 2 -H 16000 %1

and a desktop shortcut to it you can drag'n'drop files.

The new beta release of libtheora is also reported to make the
encoding/decoding far, far quicker than previous releases, just
have to wait for all the encoding apps out there to update their
builds, Linux users can get away with just replacing their
libtheora!.
