Converting AVI to OGM?

Hello

I have some AVI files I need to convert to OGM format, which is the one Stalker uses for it's video files. Googling AVI to OGM converter only brings up either OGM to AVI or software that costs money.

Any free software out there that does this or is there a special technique?

GSC used ffmpeg2theora for converting their avi to ogm. we used the same method in priboi story.

download it, and check the help file, or launch the exe in cmd, and you will see the params you can use such as quality, etc.

then make your avi to 512x288 resolution, and convert it you should remove audio channels from the video, you need to load them from ogg files separated.

after conversion is ready, you will get .ogg format from the .avi which you simply rename to .ogm and game plays it happily.

Yes, thanks, dezodor -- for the third time!*

*He's been posting info on this since 2007. Searching for it isn't that easy, though. Did you know this board returns a completely different list if you search for cutscenes versus just cutscene?

But you can find it if you search for ogm.

Another valid reason for why the search function on these forums at the very least needs an overhaul. But I digress...

Stalker plays 16:9 formats video. So 1024x576 should work also. I used that res as video backgrounds for menus.

Don't forget to add -v10 in the target file adress ( read the help file for theora as it was said ) if you want the highest quality.
You will get ogv files just as Dezodor said rename them to ogm.
Media player classic from the K-Lite codec pack can play most of them (albeit some of them can't) even the original ogm files ( just rename them to .ogv so you can play them without converting). It comes really handy for checking stuff without entering the game

Edit: The area of the video that you want to be displayed can be defined in the xml just as texture. Videos can be layered and almost every texture in a UI xml can be replaced with a video. Just to give an idea.

When I play the ogm ingame it's just a gray screen. Could you give me the command line for the ffmpeg exe that you use Dezodor?
