1. replace "-v 7" to "--optimize --two-pass --soft-target -V 2000" you
will get about 200MB file size with no changes in quality.
2. try to use libtheora ptalarbvorm, it is in alpha state but has some
improvements. You can find comparison here:
if you use ubuntu 10.10 you can download precompiled libtheora and
ffmpeg2theora on my ppa:
or just binary ffmpeg2theora here:
