    Thank you for this sharing, really helpful. I’d also recommend Acethinker Video Converter which I have used for many years. It’s a free web-based application to convert videos, you don’t have to install anything. Share it here as an alternative method.

    Have you tried Avdshare?
    It will show you a step by step guide on how to find and download the right ogv to mp4 videos as well as add ogv to MP4. In fact, this guide also applies to add subtitles to AVI, MKV, WTV, WMV, VOB, MPG, MOV, DV, FLV, WebM, OGV, and etc.

    Does avconv support gpu? I mean if I compile avconv with –enable-vdpau and setup Nvidia video card

    E.g. simple command

    avconv -i video.wmv -c:v libx264 -c:a libmp3lame -b:v 1800K video.mp4

    Can it be faster than CPU processing?
