Jump to navigation Jump to search

The OGV format is a video format that is playable in Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and Arma 3 (through e.g BIS_fnc_playVideo).

The ffmpeg tool provides a conversion output that works in Arma 3 up until ffmpeg's 4.0.2 version (4.1 and above versions have a documented bug regarding this feature: bug report).
