I have a directory full of OGV videos that youtube hates.. Unfortunately 'cheese' does not allow me to save in any other format besides OGV.  But youtube doesn't like it and my videos look like an 8-bit Atari acid tripping or something..

so I have a bunch of OGV files here:

How can I convert every OGV in the webcam folder to the same resolution .mpg files..
Also for my friends with slow upload speeds, how could I convert them to .mp4 files..

I figure .mpg is less lossy than .mp4

Please attach the code of the .sh script for each.  I would like to just execute the script by placing it in the /webcam directory and clicking it after giving it executable permission.
