How to Convert Ogg to MP4 with Detailed Steps

Can You Convert Ogg to MP4?

Short answer: Yes, you can.

The full name of Ogg is OGG Vorbis, which is an audio compression format, similar to music formats such as MP3. But one difference is that it is completely free, open and without patent restrictions. One feature of OGG Vorbis is that it supports multiple channels. And the OGG files can be played on any player. So you may see them a lot.

By comparison, MP4 is a set of compression coding standards for audio and video information. It was formulated by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The main uses of the MPEG-4 format are online streaming, CD-ROM, voice transmission (video telephony), and TV broadcasting.

So converting an Ogg file to an MP4 file is actually about changing an audio file into a video file. More specifically, it is about adding one or some images to the Ogg file, making it an MP4 file. There are a bunch of tools on the market which can help you with it. But what you need to notice when choosing them is about how the tool enables you to deal with the image(s). To make it clearer, some tools will use their default image(s) to make the MP4 file and you cannot use your own ones if you would like to, while some tools will let you do that, making this job more funny.

Anyway, both kinds of tools will be recommended in the following. Keep reading and choosing the one which you prefer.

How to Convert Ogg to MP4 Online

Online tools are getting more and more popular among users. There is no doubt about that. Because they have no requirement on users for any installation of programs. You open it in your browser and can start with the work. It would make the job much easier.

However, when it comes to the online Ogg to MP4 tools, almost all of them do not provide the option of customizing the video image(s) and other editing features, like adding lyric texts. You can use them to successfully turn an Ogg file into an MP4 file, but it is not that fun if they have more such editing features.

Anyway, if this is not a problem for you at all, here we recommend CloudConvert's OGG to MP4 Converter to help you get the job done.

Step 1. Open this CloudConvert's OGG to MP4 Converter in your browser.

Step 2. On its page, you may first notice the Select File button. But if you have some specific requirements for the MP4 file video track, please do not click it for now, but go to the options below it, where you can change many parameters of the video track, including its resolution, aspect ratio, codec, FPS, etc. You can also change the audio track parameters, but I will not recommend you to do it. Please just leave as it is.
