Make Theora .ogv transcode 2-pass encoding switchable in config, off by default
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Theora 2-pass encoding is relatively buggy; since switching it on we've identified at least one hanging bug (T115190; getting patch worked in upstream) and some other failures still not fully diagnosed (T115252).

Rather than continuing to pop patches in to turn it on/off, want to have a config switch so it can be tested more easily and then switched on if/when ready.
