OGV files are often used for playing webpage video content using the HTML5 <video> tag. However, they are generally referenced in the HTML source code using the ".ogg" extension, even though the files contain video content.
Xiph.Org, the developers of the OGV format, provide a DirectShow codec pack that enables software developers to include support for OGV files in both open-source and commercial applications.
NOTE: Audio files that use the Ogg container are called Ogg Vorbis files, where "Vorbis" refers to the specific compression algorithm used for the audio data. The term "Vorbis" does not apply to Ogg video content.
