I found this script really handy to convert Ogv to Flv directly, I thought to share it with you guys. helps you to quickly convert out Ogv files to flv with different resolutions.
Download and install Ogv to Flv Converter 1.3 check the installation instructions there.
after you done the installation simply right click on the file you want to convert and select script then convert from ogv to FLV 1.3
then it will ask you to select required resolution for the Flv output file
it will take a while then comes a successful message to inform you that the process done. Thanks “Siafu Linux” for this simple tool.
That’s it for now.
