If you upload an OGG video to archive.org then both the original OGG  
file and a derived H.264 MPEG-4 will be provided for download (see  
their recent policy change at:

Is Archive.org unacceptable because they are producing the derived  
MPEG-4 download and you want your video to ONLY be available in OGG  
format? That choice is certainly yours to make and I won't try to  
convince you otherwise; I just wanted to clarify that Archive.org will  
also offer the original OGG version.
