[Ffmpeg-devel] Cant convert mpeg to ogg using theora video codec

Hello All,

I am trying to convert a mpeg file to ogg using theora as the vcodec
and vorbis as the acodec. It seems to only convert the audio. It just
skips the video.
If I specify the vcodec to be theora using the -vcodec option, it
complains about unsupported codec. I have also tried it with vp3, but still
the same result.

Has anyone been successful in converting to ogg. Or am doing something
completely wrong.
I would appreciate any help.



Here is the output:
./ffmpeg -i /video/test4.mpg -vcodec theora -y out.ogg
