Video file that uses the Xiph.Org's open source Ogg container format; may contain video streams that use one or more different codecs, such as Theora; can be played using a variety of media players.
OGV files are often used for playing webpage video content using the HTML5 <video> tag. However, they are generally referenced in the HTML source code using the ".OGG" extension, even though the files contain video content.
NOTE: Audio files that use the Ogg container are called Ogg Vorbis files, where "Vorbis" refers to the specific compression algorithm used for the audio data. The term "Vorbis" does not apply to Ogg video content.
