older version do allow ogg but it is not available anywhere (i didn't check p2p yet)... your link goes to the latest build on their website and they don't offer previous builds and they just let people download super from their official website (legally, it is in their license) so non of the other websites i have seen host the exe themselves but they give link to erightsoft's  website to download... so only way to obtain the previous builds that let ogg video is by p2p... and this is quite weird because download from p2p in not "legal" according to their license. it is "free to download and free to use" but not to redistribute... this shows the importance of fsf's copyleft attitude which is absent in super's license...

super is a great software and it is linked and promoted from most of the websites giving information about ogg conversion... i hope it will support ogg video again in their next build....

Super is a 'swiss army knife' video converter, allowing converting
anything to anything. They're probably using ogm to allow storing divx
content alongside vorbis. An older version of Super I use does allow
