Not that I've been able to figure out. I know it will make Theora/Ogg video with the OGG wrapper.

It doesn't look to me like this would be a good transcoder anyway.

About the closest thing I found was ffmpeg2theora, but that isn't NSV.

It looks like they'res supposed to be some sort of support for NSV, but I haven't found anything but vague reference to it.

It does play NSV, but with VP6?.

VLC supports NSV streams but last I checked you needed to use VP3.

Google says it'll never support VP6

This module allows you to read NSV (Nullsoft Streaming Video) streams. Most NSV streams use the VP6 codec which is currently unsupported by VLC (VLC only supports VP1 and VP3 for the moment).
since it says "currently unsupported" and this is on an official page, it might support it later, so if any coders around here are interested in helping out the community, feel free to...

Very unfortunately, VLC has no support for proprietary codecs like Realvideo ( RV 9, RV 10, RV 40 ) or ON2 VP6, because its developers decided to include support for only those formats where a free, GPL decoder is available. RealNetworks and ON2 did not provide such a decoder, so MKV files using these formats are not supported.

Most linux distros have a widget that will allow you to load VFW drivers (dll's). I'm not sure about VLC or VP6, but I can watch Windows media (wmv and the like) with kplayer on linux.

This is probably, mostly legal, cause you'd probably have to own windows to get the dll.

If it's using VLC the logical choice of video format would be h.264, after all x264 is being developed by videolan.

or Theora....

Despite what everyone says, VP3/Theora is not that bad of a codec. It's very stable and if you have enough bandwidth, it looks really good.
