17 MayConvert .mp4 from Flip Video to Ogg Theora .ogv

The Flip Video UltraHD camcorder records files in a .mp4 format. I wanted to convert them to Ogg Theora format. How do you do that? I did far too much searching for an answer to this question for the answer to be this easy:

apt-get install ffmpeg2theora

and then:

ffmpeg2theora vid00001.mp4

That outputs a file called vid00001.ogv and you’re done. Find further information about the fabulous ffmpeg2theora at its website.
