Not completely sure about this, though I can't see why it wouldn't work:
Would it be possible for you to run the asf video through mplayer
(mplayer plays those files, right?) and convert it to another format
(I believe you can dump the video to a mpeg 1 file or something like
that).  Then take that file and use ffmpeg to encode it to theora.

Haven't tried this yet for something exactly like this, but it should
work; or at least get you started on the right path.

Good luck,
