Does anyone know a way to convert .mp4 video to .ogg video (in Windows)? None of the converters I've seen online seem to do the job.

For people looking to convert .mp4 video to .ogg audio on Linux, it's avconv -i input.mp4 -nv output.ogg. – Ryan O'Hara Oct 22 '12 at 3:11

@minitech: On Ubuntu 14.04 it says Unrecognized option 'nv' – Nicolas Raoul Jun 8 '14 at 14:03
@NicolasRaoul: Sorry, it’s -vn, rather. – Ryan O'Hara Jun 9 '14 at 2:33

I see people promoting SUPER quite often and I'm not sure why, when options such as Miro or plain old FFmpeg are available?
To do this with ffmpeg just use this (simple) command:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -acodec libvorbis -vcodec libtheora -f ogv output.ogv

SUPER is a gui frontend for ffmpeg, so it can convert mp4 into ogg.

If you want a good video converter that can convert pretty much anything to anything, I would highly recommend Handbrake. It is free and open source.

I personally can't recommend Handbrake on the OS specified in the question. I've tried it and haven't had very good luck. – Paul Gregoire Sep 12 '10 at 5:13
@Mondain - Handbrake on Windows is great, it is the only video converter I use now. – William Hilsum Sep 13 '10 at 1:10
I used Handbrake on windows and never had any luck with it – zeitue Apr 1 '15 at 2:47
