I'm developing an Flask application in i want upload a file and encode an video to ogv using ffmpeg via subprocess, no problem here. My question is, there are a tool included on fedora (totally free-software) that could encode videos to ogv?

Checking, ffmpeg is released under the GPLv2+ and the ogv format is free: meaning that you don't need a "free-software alternative" because what you're looking for is already free.

Correct. Though it would be nice to add some tools that can export in .ogv format.

Yep, I know. but ffmpeg it is available from rpm-fussion-free and my application it is destined to be deployed on infra fedora servers (they use epel6). I doubt they want install packages from rpmfusion

You might want to check before turning ffmpeg down both because of its license and the fact that it's from rpmfusion-free. Whoever you're working for may find that acceptable, and it's worth taking the time to ask.

I see a question here that lists out quite a few options. May be worth a look:

(I haven't checked each method for licensing)
