How to create and how to open an OGV file
Creating an OGV file requires a program that allows you to save the video in OGV format. Many video editors can save in OGV, so all you need is a reliable video creator and editor application. You can also create OGV videos from your MP4 and MPEG files using a video converter. There are several online and downloadable converters available for creators.
Opening an OGV file should be dauntless as there are many video players that support the format. Windows and Mac users can open OGV files using VLC, File Viewer Plus, MPlayer, JRiver Media Center, MPUI and Media Player Classic (with K-Lite Codec). You can also use popular video editors like Movavi or stream the video online.

You can convert OGV files to other formats and vice versa. All you need is a reliable video converter or editor. Some of the formats available for conversion include
OGV files are popular online and mostly used on websites. Not many players support the format, so you might want to convert to MP4, AVI or other formats you can use on your phone and computer. However, OGV files are much smaller and easier to work with when you need to save space and bandwidth, although it is a lossy format that trims some elements during compression.
Converting to or from OGV will depend on what you want to achieve. OGV files are highly compressed but may offer lower quality compared to other formats. It is ideal for video creation in editors and online streaming on websites. However, if you want to watch videos on your phone or computer, you’ll need a player that supports OGV or convert to other proprietary formats.
