Sorry to ask for more work... But I tried to download the ogg/theora version of Big Buck Bunny and read it from the gallery, but rendering doesn't seem to work properly.

A simple workaround : reading this kind of files with the web browser, as the gecko engine can handle ogg/theora.

But it could be better if we could store videos with such free codec...

Thank you for the link!

Ogg Theora and ogg Vorbis are supported and should work. Could you please share a link to the video itself?

I verified that it is broken :(

The 720p version http://mirrorblender.top-ix.org/peach/bigbuckbunny_movies/big_buck_bunny_720p_stereo.ogg however works fine :D

But yes it's a bug and I created an internal bug about it. I will do my best to keep you updated.

I totally forgot to post an update here. This has been fixed and should be part of 1.1.9
