OGV Converter Freeware Software

Since I have ~ 200 ogv files that I need to convert or redownload, I was hoping to save the time of redownloading, but so far I have not found a converter that is able to handle these files. Daniusoft nor Format Factory doesn't see them, and when I tried using Freemake, it froze the system on the first attempt, and on the second and third, it showed no progress for 5-7 minutes, then announced completion instantly, but the output files were minuscule and inoperative. Anyone know of a converter that will actually work on ogv?

Use Google and search for "ogv converter" and you will find lots of options.

Try XMedia Recode.

Just for the heck of it and after reading your query, I converted a .vob file to .ogv using OGG Video Converter http://www.ogg-converter.net/free-do...-converter.htm -shareware. will convert only 10 files free - and used it to convert to .vob again. Then I used XMedia Recode to convert the .ogv file to avi and vob file. All were successful.

(Please do not ask me any further questions. I am not a conversion specialist. )

EDIT: Some useful guides here and here

I've used XMedia several times now, and it seems to be an excellent converter. Thanks.

Glad that it meets your requirements adequately. Just curious to know to which format you wanted to convert and converted.

Ogv to most anything that Movie Collector will detect. Currently, I'm using mp4, because of it's small size and it's detection.

I felt that I should add, that even though XMedia worked well at first, today it started giving me some trouble. When adding the first file that it is to convert, it would play just a moment of the audio, and maybe the video, because I didn't have the chance to select the preview tab before it froze the system, requiring a forced reboot. When this happened several times in a row, I decided to reinstall it, hoping that would fix it...I doubt that it did, because as before, it played a moment of audio on the first file, but didn't freeze things up.

I went ahead and loaded it up with 10 files, since that when it works, it works well. However, I'm not going to use it again on W7. I may try installing it on XP and hope that it feels more at home there.

Whichever file gives trouble with XMedia Recode, try it with OGG Video Converter. (The shareware can convert only 10 files free). This may help isolate the problem to check whether the file itself is a problem.

Next there are some settings in the Video tab. I have no idea what these settings do - there is no exhaustive guide in English - but what I have understood is some files may need a different level setting. More than that I am unable to throw any light on it.

Yesterday I just played around converting some small .vob files (music tracks) to mkv and all went on well. But when I tried to convert to M2TS the resulting file could not play the video in WMP or Power DVD. I presume it requires more in-depth knowledge of the various settings and video compression methodology or I need to change some settings in the Shark 007 codecs. I left it at that since conversion as I have said already is not my cup of tea.

As far as I have been able to tell, it is not any particular file that causes the problem. It is the first one loaded into the program, right after initiating the program. If it only chirps a moment, and then remains silent, it will continue without a problem, but too ofen the audio continues indefinitely, while everything else freezes up. Since my last post, I completed the first batch of 10 files, and now am running another 12. On this last batch there was no chirp at all, so it is good to go, until it is shutdown and later restarted.

I wish that I could mark this thread unsolved, because I have found that XMedia has much more serious issues than I thought. When I convert a batch of files, and then Go to the output folder, I may find some or all of the files that it said that it processed missing, even though while monitoring it's progress, there is no hint of the problem. This on top of the fact that too much of the program is in German, like the EULA, help files and some dialog boxes, does not help increase my confidence in it.

I have now decided to abandon it altogether, and continue looking for a replacement...if there are any other idea?

EDIT: I forgot to mention that on one batch of files, which it seemed to methodically process, that instead of proceeding with the next file, when finishing the last, that it continued processing the last, and the output folder contained 2 or 3 copies of the same file.
