I have posted this question to different forums (Apple, Xiph, etc) to no
avail, I am now reaching out here. I am not a programmer, I am a video
encoder looking for a way to add OGG to our current video batch processing

My question:

Has anyone had any success exporting OGG videos from Apple Compressor?

Using XiphQT 0.1.9 (Mac OS X), I can export an ogg video from Quicktime Pro
with no problem, Xiph Theora for video/ Vorbis for audio. The files are
perfect and open in Firefox.

However attempting the same settings with Apple Compressor, the movie never
exports. It will export if I change the audio from Vorbis, BUT the videos
will not work in Firefox.

MacPro 2x3 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, 5 GB ram   Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Compressor 3.0.5/Quicktime Version 7.5.5 (249.13)

additional info
Compressors failed exports give the error "Quicktime Error -2041"
