I believe ffmpeg2theora has a switch to encode from DV.

One of those should be able to do it, but I recommend you not keep
hammering that nail and try Thoggen instead.  It's a software (with a
GUI!) for ripping DVD to Theora.  The only thing bad you can point at
it is that it doesn't add the Skeleton track nor does it use the .ogv
file extension, which are all recent developments.  Next version
should probably add those things.
