Encoding Ogg Video with Firefogg
(In this section, Iâm going to use âOgg videoâ as a shorthand for âTheora video and Vorbis audio in an Ogg container.â This is the combination of codecs+container that works natively in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.)
Firefogg is an open source, GPL-licensed Firefox extension for encoding Ogg video. To use it, youâll need to install Mozilla Firefox 3.5 or later, then visit the Firefogg website, shown in FigureÂ 5-1.
Click âInstall Firefogg.â Firefox will prompt whether you really want to allow the site to install an extension. Click âAllowâ to continue (FigureÂ 5-2).
Firefox will present the standard software installation window. Click âInstall Nowâ to continue (FigureÂ 5-3).
Click âRestart Firefoxâ to complete the installation (FigureÂ 5-4).
Once Firefox has restarted, the Firefogg website will confirm that Firefogg was successfully installed (FigureÂ 5-5).
