Firefox plugin to encode Ogg video

Michael Dale just posted this to theora-dev. Go to one of the given URLs to install the Firefox plugin that lets you transcode video to Ogg using your Web browser.

Firefogg is developed by Jan Gerber and lives at http://www.firefogg.org/. There is a javascript API available so you can make use of Firefogg in your own Website project to allow people to upload any video and transcode it to Ogg on the fly.
