multiple files to multichannel ogg vorbis?
I am trying to merge multiple stereo ogg vorbis files into a single multichannel ogg vorbis file using only command line Linux tools.

From what I understand, oggenc requires a multichannel input.  I have used sox -M to create a multichannel wave file, but oggenc doesn't like it:
Code: [Select]
Warning: INVALID format chunk in wav header.
 Trying to read anyway (may not work)...
Skipping chunk of type "fact", length 4
ERROR: Wav file is unsupported type (must be standard PCM
 or type 3 floating point PCM)
ERROR: Input file "combined_newsox.wav" is not a supported format

Audacity will read it fine, however.

Using sox to create the multichannel ogg, the output sounds horrible.

Any suggestions?

2 options i found when trying to do this,

1. use besweet http://besweet.notrace.dk/  sometimes this works wonderfully, tho it can be a royal pain in the ass at times to.

2. make a multi Chanel wav file, THEN convert to ogg using latest greatest aotuv

good luck, this kinda stuff is alwase a pain in my arse when i try and do it

Thanks for the reply.

I ended up using sox to merge to a multichannel aiff file, and oggenc seems to handle that fine.  I've done limited testing, but so far, all seems well.
