ogginfo: support for information in Kate streams
I was going to say what exactly is Ogg Kate?
.......Edit: I assume John Edwards may compile oggdropXPd internally with the library, so the feature may be available easily for everyone. Only he may confirm.
Ogg Kate is a new (as in, born in 2008) codec for lyric and subtitles. Support is already available in ffmpeg2theora and VLC for people who want to use it in video. Now it comes to music
Not to go off topic, but is anyone aware of whether Theora can scale to HD video yet?
... * oggenc: fixed remapping channels bug (#1326) * oggenc: support for WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE headers (#1326) * oggenc: support for 32 bit Wave files (#1326) * oggenc: --ignorelength; support for Wave files > 4 GB (#1326)...
Thanks Saoshyant but I have a doubt other people might have too.The vorbis-tools contain decoder and encoder and you've published fixes in this v1.3.0 beta, but there's no tuning done? Has tuning nothing to do with this vorbis-tools? Is this vorbis-tools an official version or will it be?I use Aoyumi encoder and wonder what I will gain using vorbis-tools (I only use as source 16-bits wav files extracted from audio CD). I'm confused
aotuv is a tuned version of libvorbis, but this is not libvorbis but vorbis tools FYI, you can compile vorbis tools against aotuv and you benefit from both of them
OK but the Windows encoder doesn't include libvorbis? I still haven't got a clear picture, hopefully somebody can explain a global vision.There's no mention of vorbis-tools on official Vorbis page and the Rarewares ogg page doesn't clear up which version is the recommended one.
Thanks for improve the multichannel support.

Sure it can and using a quite smaller CPU footprint than the other HD codecs. The only downside to it is that Theora 1.0 requires a somewhat bigger file size than those to keep up on quality, but if you're dealing with HD content disk space is not really a concern. Theora 1.1, codename Thusnelda and a work in progress, will bring compression quality similar to H.264, so the file size of HD content by then will be pretty similar to H.264's.
it is defaulting to disable vcut build. adding --enable-vcut to configure works fine, but this is different behaviour from 1.2.0, fyi.
Is really appreciated the effort your giving with the release of vorbis tools. I would personally like to thank you for working on this new vorbis tools release.
I'd like to ask you something though. How difficult will be to create a kind of windows shell so vista could recognise and display the tag infos that a vorbis file holds?
Is that possible to try and do something similar on Vista? or could this new realease of vorbis-tools be capable of helping someone create something that would allowed that?
* ogg123: support for ReplayGain; requires libvorbis 1.2.1 or later (#381)
Latest libvorbis release are 1.2.0? Does this mean you'll have to check libvorbis out of svn to get that working?
Or get one of the two Release Candidates released so far, yeah. Don't worry about it for the casual user, both the new libvorbis and vorbis-tools will be released at the same time.
