OggConvert 0.2.0 ""I walk around my house and think of you with nothing on""

This is the second release of OggConvert, a simple Gnome utility to convert media files into the patent-free Theora, Dirac and Vorbis formats.

Dirac encoding requires GStreamer 0.10.11 and the Schroedinger encoder. Be aware that the encoder is still experimental, and that videos you encode today might not be watchable in future as the decoder develops.

OggConvert is written in Python using PyGTK and PyGST. It is released under the GNU LGPL.

Release notes 

What's new in this version:

* Support for Dirac. Wooo!

* OggConvert now actually quits when you close it with the window manager (although nobody actually complained about that in the last version)

* OggConvert no longer crashes horribly with pitfdll (although it still can't use it for encoding)

* We now check whether the encoder has stalled, and warn the user. This helps with the common case of the end-of-stream message not being fired correctly, and the process being stuck on 99.5% or so.

* OggConvert can now handle GStreamer not being able to report the current position or duration of the stream (this occasionally happens with files using the ffmpeg demuxers)

* A lovely new "about" dialogue!

* Many, many other small bugfixes
