OggConvert version 0.3.3 “Where did you go…” has been released.
This is the latest version of OggConvert, a simple GTK utility to convert media files to the patent-free Vorbis, Theora, Dirac and now VP8 formats.
What’s new in this version:
- Support for the newly-opened VP8 codec (requires gst-plugins-bad 0.10.18 or newer)
- Support for the WebM container
- Fixes Dirac encoder no longer being detected since it moved packages
- Change the way quality is calcuated for Dirac encoding, hopefully leading to better-looking files
- New translations: Arabic, Danish, Greek, Japanese, Latvian and Romanian, and lots of other translations updated. Many thanks, as always, to the translators.
The source code (executable without installation thanks to Python) can be downloaded from
