oggDump - prints out information of ogg video files (.ogv, .ogg or oga)
oggDump [options] file.ogv
gives detailed information about an ogg video file and prints these information with a given detail level.
Ogg files consist of a number of streams (video and audio). From the Ogg-container perspective, the streams are devided into pages. These pages usually have nearly the same size. The pages can be printed out with the -g option.
From the stream perspective, every stream consists of packets. These packets carry a bunch of compressed audio samples in case of a vorbis stream or one video frame in case of a theora video stream. These packets could be of variable length and are places into the ogg pages. To print the packets, use the -p option.
