Ogg Video?
« on: April 18, 2006, 06:48:11 PM »
I have in my possession a few files that are in the .ogm format, which I've been told is ogg-vorbis video. I've searched the internet and even gone straight to Ogg's website in search for a codec to view the videos but I can't find anything that will play them. I've downloaded a few ogg codecs and now I can clearly play ogg audio but still nothing will play the video files.

Does anyone have any information that might help me?

have you tried this?

if you have VLC player, just use it, it plays almost everything.
If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

I'm no expert, but as far as I understand it, OGG is actually a "container" format. AVI is also a container format. What this means, is that the file type may have nothing to do with that you'll need to decode it. For instance, OGM can contain Xvid video and audio ac3 audio, OR it could have h264 (or whatever it is) video and mp3 audio. (Just like AVIs can be Divx, Xvid, etc.)

Again, I may be talking out my a** here, but as far as I know, "Vorbis" is actually an audio compression format that is almost always contained in the OGG container format (hence the term "Ogg-Vorbis").

MKVs are another container format that's gaining popularity. They allow DVD style chapters, multiple audio tracks, and menus (I think). For more info on MKVs (or Matroska files) check out: matroska.org.

If you're looking for a nice Matroska (and probably OGM also) player, check out The Core Media Player at corecoded.com

BTW, T.C.M.P. is based on ffdshow, which, one way or another, has/gets all the codecs it needs.

OGM is container format (like AVI). So, it's not a codec. It's a specification.

Yes and also on that site is specifies that the audio for OGM is usually Ogg-Vorbis, but the video is DivX or AVI or what have you.
