The OGV extension file is a video file that uses the Xiph.Org open source OGG container format.
Because it is a container, OGV files themselves are not a video format, and therefore can contain video sequences that use one or more different codecs.
It can be played using a variety of media players.
It is common to see that OGV files are used to play video content on web pages under HTML5 technology.
However, in HTML5, the OGG extension is generally referenced in the source code, even if the files contain video.
The DirectShow codecs from Xiph.Org, the developers of the OGV format, provide a package that enables software developers to include support for OGV files in both open source and commercial applications.
These codecs for OGV files have been incorporated into several free and commercial media players, as well as some portable hardware players, by their manufacturers.
Audio files using the OGV container use OGG Vorbis compression, as the algorithm used for audio data.
The OGV format uses lossy video compression.
