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.
LXDE is really lightweight desktop and that what this desktop name stand for, a lot of distributions right now using LXDE desktop, if you was a windows user you will feel it looks similar to it a little bit. But this is not the idea, LXDE comes with a lot of integrated packages with it for file manager “PCMan file manager”, and music player LXmusic, and many other packages.
LXDE menu panel
File manager for LXDE
Music player and themes manager for LXDE Desktop, also you will be able to change themes and icons
you download it and install it from LXDE website This way recommended to other distribution or
for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Go To Terminal and type:
## will ask you for the administration password
then it will take some time for the installation process
after the Installation over, Log out and log in with LXDE Desktop
Enjoy LXDE on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
