  • compressing to OGV and WEBM

    Does anyone know how to compress to OGV and WEBM? This is all new language to me.
    I need to have these files compressed in two days.
    Thanks greatly,

    .OGV is Ogg Vorbis designed for streaming, it's a container, the actual CODEC for video is probably Theora. It's already compressed. Why would you be using such non-standard, compressed files? OGV usually applies to Linux systems using open standards. You can open that in VLC but I'm not sure what you could accomplish there. Compressor and Adobe Media Encoder won't recognize the file, nor will MPEG Streamclip. WEBM is another open format designed for HTML5. Again, not a source file.

      Thank you Zwick. So, just to be sure... what do I say to the client about those two formats -- OGV and WEBM? When you say, not a source file does that mean it is not a video file?

        They didn't come off a camera like that. You don't want to hear what I would say to the client. I'm not a good influence in that way.

          Is it for some proprietary in-house video server or something? Those just aren't commonly used anymore. Does the client need to be "goosed" into newer codecs & formats?

            This just in from The TechnoGeek:

            "WEBM : an open source video codec from google. Try VLC.

            OGV : Ogg Vorbis audio file. QuickTime may be able to export it."

              No, QT does not recognize an OGV. I would have said that if it did.
