I goto: http://firefogg.org/make/index.html then click select a file. When i select a file the browser hangs and crashes. I was encoding the beginning of the week now i am stuck. Firefox updated the Firefogg add-on and it didn't work after that. I updated the browser itself to see if that caused the problem. It did not. Nothing is working with this add-on now.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I try to open a source video to convert to the ogv format

The crash is likely in the OGG encoder, which is forcing Firefox to crash due to that extension. To look up your crash reports, I need the list of crash ID's from Mozilla Crash Reporter. Follow these steps to get the reports, and reply back here.

Could you use the command-line version of ffmpeg2theora, and see if this crashes. There are instructions for doing this on wikipedia.

The OGG encoder hangs and Firefox just doesn't respond. I have to force quit. I looked at the crash reports and didn't find anything. Here is the report from this morning:

bp-ead39f60-f51b-4ae8-919a-db5192100617 http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report.../bp-ead39f60-f51b-4ae8-919a-db5192100617

I tried the command line version of ffmpeg2theora and was able to convert a few files. Then that decided not to work. It tells me that the file cannot be found or if the wrong format. All the files are the same format. It was able to convert 3 out of 8. So I don't know what's up with that.

I downloaded miro and was able to use that, however, it does not let you change the frame size. So if I have a 720x480 source that I want exported at 480x320 it will remain at the 720 frame size. Conversely, I had a 480x320 file and it blew it up to 720x480.
