converting digital camera movies to ogg format

Posted by Cliff Brake on 2009-09-09 | Comments are off for this article

Now that firefox (v3.5) has built in support for ogg videos, ogg is now the most convenient format for “easy to view” video files (assuming you don’t want to use a service like youtube).  Some digital cameras (like my Canon) records movies in AVI format.  I created a script that uses gstreamer to convert the AVI file to an ogg file for easy viewing.

And some of the results:

(hint, download firefox 3.5 to view these videos)
