Maik, thanks for the reply. I have already tried the
ffmpeg2theora with the latest ffmpeg SVN. The
ffmpeg2theora doesn't work and simply hangs. I have
already informed the developer of ffmpeg2theora.

Please forgive me if this offend people but it seems
ffmpeg2theora is a one-man work. I prefer a serious
tool for serious work from a community supported
organisation like xiph. If the xiph thinks
ffmpeg2theora is the right tool, why not take over it
and support the development? Its nothing better than a
dependable tool from The Source.

Best Regards
