OggConvert for Windows

12 September, 2008 (01:35) | News | By: Tristan

According to the browser stats, nearly one third of people who visit this website are using Windows. Up till now, almost every single one of them would have had to leave disappointed. Well not any more: if you’re a Windows user, I’m delighted to tell you that you can now run OggConvert!

Well, okay, so it doesn’t look great, but the point is it works. Installation instructions can be found on the Windows page, but be warned it’s not quite as easy as on Linux at this point.

It’s early days, and you should probably regard this as a beta version at best. It’s only been tested on 32-bit Windows XP — it should also work on Windows 2000, but I have no idea about Vista, and Win64 seems unlikely.

If you fancy trying it out, please do drop back here and leave a comment about whether it worked or not. That way hopefully we can make OggConvert a bit more Windows-friendly in future. And like it says on the other page, if anyone with the know-how wants to put together an installation package to make life easier for Windows users…

I’m using OGG video for my development team since it only requires Firefox. Currently I’m just running a VirtualBox Ubuntu so I can convert the videos, but will look forward to a stable Windows client :)
