why don't you read your replies?
"ogv" is not a format "ogg" is one

ffmpeg -i test.mp3 -f ogg -acodec vorbis -strict experimental test.oga
Output #0, ogg, to 'test.oga':
    title           : Mamma Mia
    artist          : ABBA
    album           : ABBA
    genre           : Pop
    track           : 1
    date            : 1975
    encoder         : Lavf55.33.100
    Stream #0:0: Audio: vorbis, 44100 Hz, stereo, fltp

ogv is the same and works at least the last 4 or 5 years with libtheora / libvorbis

-f ogg  -vcodec libtheora -acodec vorbis -strict experimental
-f ogg  -vcodec libtheora -acodec libvorbis

"-acodec vorbis -strict experimental" in case you don't have linked "libvorbis"

why do you think so?
you tell ffmpeg with params what it should do

-f ogg -acodec vorbis -strict experimental"
-f ogg -acodec libvorbis
