What is an OGV (Ogg Vorbis) file?

Ogg Vorbis (OGV) is a free, open-source, unpatented multimedia container format and codec. It is part of the Ogg family of formats and codecs, which the non-profit Xiph.Org Foundation developed to compete with patented codecs. OGV can time-division multiplex (TDM) audio, video, text (subtitles), and metadata. It supports streaming, as well as lossy and lossless compression. However, it does not support menus.
