How to upload .OGV video file to Vimeo

Vimeo does not support .ogv video file format. So when I wanted to upload video file produced gtk-recordMyDesktop to Vimeo then I had to find a way how to convert it into some format that is supported. The following is a link to blog post that saved my day:

If the above link does not work then the magic command follows:

mencoder -idx input.ogv -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -o output.avi
