You can use oggz-comment, part of the liboggz package to add metadata
to Ogg Theora files. The tags are the same as for vorbis audio files:

TITLE=Name or title of the video
AUTHOR=Who's speaking
COPYRIGHT=Copyright 2010 Copyright Holder
DESCRIPTION=Brief description or abstract goes here...

Hope that helps, and thanks for supporting free formats.
