OGG batch encoding possible on windows system???

Is there ANY way to create a batch encoding of uncompressed .MOV files on a windows system into .OGG video files?

Basically SUPER batches files that are damaged (green artifacts) I´ve got clean examples out of VLC in single transcodings, but once I switch to batch encodings the stream breaks (as you probably already know) ffmpeg with an WinFF GUI frontend does the same

You should try ffmpeg2theora from the command line. If you also install MinGW or Cygwin you can then use the bash shell like "for i in *.mov; do ffmpeg2theora -V 2000 $i; done". --Gmaxwell 16:07, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Hey Gmaxwell,

thanks for the tip, I just set up a batch conversion and the first files are coming along quite nicely. No artefacts yet. I didn´t go the MingGQ/Cygwin path, opting instead for a .bat file that cycles through all the MOV files.

I´ll update tomorrow and give a short feedback on how it went

it worked allright, but I still believe that this is not a professional user-friendly approach to batch processing OGG video files in a project-based enviroment. I mean, OGG is supposed to be the next big online video file format. Anybody care to write a GUI-based OGG converter for Windows that allows batch processing and individual tweaking of Theora/Vorbis settings. I believe there are already enough command line/linux Theora applications out there ;)
