The .ogv file format is also known as Ogg\Vorbis it is open source and
very easily converted.

If you would like to convert the file to a proprietary format like mpeg4
or some form of AVI, you can use a transcoding tool.

Transcoding tools like: VLC media player, mencoder, and ffmpeg all
support Ogg.


If you need more help, please feel free to contact me directly,

Subject: [Athen] Captioning - OGV file format

Hi all,

I have a department at the University of Arizona that wants to post .ogv

video formats on their Website. We are working with Automatic Sync
Technologies for the captioning of other media files but .ogv is not
supported. Has any successfully captioned this type of file? If so,
what steps did you take?
