3 Ways to Convert MP4 to OGG (Incl. Online and Offline Methods)

MP4 is the most popular multimedia format that can be recognized by almost all media players. It is used to store video, audio, still images, and subtitles. But sometimes we need to convert MP4 to another format, such as OGG.

OGG usually refers to OGG Vorbis, which is an audio compression format, similar to MP3 and other music formats. But one difference is that it is completely free, open and patent-free. One of the features of OGG Vorbis is that it supports multi-channel. Ogg Vorbis files have the extension .OGG. The design format of this file is very advanced. The created OGG files can be played on any future player, so the file format can be continuously improved in size and sound quality without affecting older encoders or players.

Now we already know the advantages of OGG. Well, how can we convert MP4 to OGG? In this article, we will introduce 3 methods.

If you already have it installed on your computer, just ignore this step.

Step 2. Open MP4.

Launch VLC, click "Media" and then choose "Convert / Save…". Then, Open Media dialogue will appear. Now you need to click the "File" tab, and click the "+ Add" button to select one or multiple MP4 files you want to convert to OGG.

Method 3. Convert MP4 to OGG Online and Free

If you don't want to install a desktop-based MP4 to OGG converter, you can also try an online tool. There are many choices, such as:

  • Convertio (A free account lets you upload and convert up to 100 MB of file.)
  • FreeConvert (For the free plan, the file upload limit is 1 GB.)
  • Zamzar (For the free plan, the maximum upload file size is 50 MB.)

These MP4 to OGG converters are free to use, but they all specify a maximum file size without exception, as we mentioned above. If your file size exceeds the maximum limit, you will need to pay to use it.

Additionally, we noticed that some users want to convert MP4 to OGG with CloudConvert. But unfortunately, CloudConvert doesn't support OGG output.

Now we take FreeConvert as an example to demonstrate how to convert MP4 to OGG format online.

Step 1. Go to FreeConvert MP4 to OGG Converter page.

Step 2. Import an MP4 video by clicking the "Choose Files" button. It allows you to load video from Device, Dropbox, Google Drive, and URL.

Step 5. When the conversion is done, simply click the "Download OGG" button to save your OGG file to your local device. Please be noted that converted files are automatically deleted after 4 hours to protect your privacy.

All of the tools above can help you convert MP4 to OGG. If you need to convert a large MP4 video to a high quality OGG audio file at superfast speed, Winxvideo AI is the best choice.

If you need to convert MP4 to OGG Theora video format (OGV), VLC is the right one to choose. Since VLC isn't equipped with speed-boosting technologies, it will take quite a long time to finish the conversion.

As for those who prefer free online tools to desktop program, they can try Convertio, FreeConvert, Zamzar, and other web-based tools supporting MP4 to OGG conversion. But they need to make sure that the source file size does not exceed the maximum file size and they need to make sure they have a stable and fast internet connection. Otherwise, it will take quite a long time to upload, convert, and download file.
