Fix Miro 3.0 Ogg Conversion Quality

From the poster “Phil” on the Miro support forums…

In this directory/Terminal:
cd /Applications/Miro Video Converter.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python2.7/mvc
Edited this file:
open -e basicconverters.py

After these lines:
class OggTheora(converter.FFmpegConverterInfo):
media_type = ‘format’
extension = ‘ogv’
I replaced:
  parameters = ‘-f ogg -vcodec libtheora -acodec libvorbis -aq 10’
With:
   parameters = ‘-f ogg -vcodec libtheora -c:v libtheora -c:a libvorbis -q:v 4’

Then ran python -m compileall .  in that directory in Terminal.app.

Then I quit and re-started the Miro Video Converter.app … Now I get better quality OggTheora …
(I actually also replaced ffmpeg in the Helpers dir with my own binary, but I don’t think mattered, as I had the same problem until I changed the config.)

Ogg conversion very bad quality : Miro Video Converter.
