When this happened (search for OGG):

It pretty much sealed Ogg's fate on my system. Not sure quite what the backstory is there, maybe just developer apathy toward Ogg. But, personally, I tend to go where the tools go.

As far as I know, Handbrake never supported Ogg. It supported OGM, which was a different system built using a modified Ogg container. You could put Xiph codecs in it, but most people didn't. You're better off using Matroska to do that anyway, so no actual loss.

Interesting, I had thought that they were the same. Who created OGM? Someone totally unrelated to Xiph? (the wikipedia page doesn't say)

I'm using Handbrake because it produces by far the best results (auto cropping, optional noise reduction and other filters, multiple audio tracks, chapter marks, etc) from anywhere (disc, iso, DV, file, etc) with a tiny amount of setup work on my part. Good queue management, etc. Is there any equivalent for Ogg?

Transcoding is a wasteland of half-finished, horrible projects. I feel lucky to have found Handbrake.

Congrats on the TheorARM grant BTW.
