How do I get OggConvert for openSUSE?

I know OggConvert is a great program for converting video files to Ogg Theora, but there don't seem to be openSUSE packages available. Has anyone found some? Or, barring that, found some decent compile instructions?

You could get an RPM from h31's repo at http://download.opensuse.org...

It is available in the noarch directory.

Alternatively, you could use ffmpeg2theora, a program which does pretty much the same as oggconvert. A 1-click-install is available at http://packman.links2linux.org/package/ffmpeg2theora/72064

What version of openSUSE are you using?...

You can get OggConvert Packages for openSUSE 10.3 and 11.0 through the openSUSE Build Service.

If your using openSuSE 11.1 just do a google search for "oggconvert" then click on the first result and you should be at the OggConvert Homepage. From there find the .tar.gz source package and download it. It's written in Python so you don't have to compile and install it. You can just extract the files, chmod oggconvert, and to exec just type "python oggconvert"
