Ogg can only embed  Free codecs theora and vorbis , I'm 99% sure ( It's why
this guy created OGM )

i am using Ubuntu 7.04, with the default player (Totem Movie Player 2.18.1),

On Ubuntu , Totem Rely on Gstreamer and the theora Gstreamer plugin is
installed by default . Ogg video with theora/vorbis  needs ...... theora &
vorbis  codec right now but remenber you can have ogg audio files ( only
vorbis ) .

A good think could be to use ogv and oga as you can't use different handler
for the same file extension  in Windows for exemple.
