Vorbis RC3 Pre 5

Major changes to the libraries and a fundamental change to the way the selected bitrate is communicated internally mean that the Pre 5 posted (later today) at:

http://www.inf.ufpr.br/~rja00/

is OGGENC.EXE only.

OGGENC.EXE works fine, but oggdrop and vorbis.dll give interesting results varying from a selected bitrate of 64kbps yielding 230kbps! to a selected bitrate of 350kbps yielding 630kbps! If I figure where the changes are I'll post these others later.

BTW, the program headers are now actually saying "RC3"

It's uploaded.

The file is in the same zip (dailyvorbis.zip) as the Pre4
OggDrop and vorbis.dll

I decided not to create a special link just for this
release. (Since john33 can send me anytime the
other files)

Roberto.

Strange... I just entered there, and everything loaded OK.

What happens? 404? Or the server
doesn't answers?

Thanks for the info.

Rjamorim,

I can't reach yor page either: "Cannot find server or DNS Error". Something must be wrong.

I am truly amazed - it keeps working
perfectly well for me.

Anyway, I hope it doesn't happens again...

I tried tracerouting your server and every packed send there gets lost on the way.

I've already contacted the sysadmin.

Now, I'm waiting for her answer.

thx for the file

Ok, I've already got her answer. One of the servers os down, so, half of the
people who try to access it are getting
DNS errors.

She promised to fix it as soon as possible.

yep

but this bitrate bug is kinda annyoing

Yeah, sorry about this but I can't seem to find where this occuring at the moment. The odd thing is that the frontend to oggenc is unchanged from yesterday when oggdrop and vorbis.dll all compiled and ran fine. However, the backend did change, obviously in a way that didn't affect oggenc, but did affect the other two. I just see can't where it is. If I still had a copy of yesterday's programs, I could make a comparison but they were overwritten in the CVS update! I haven't given up, but I'm kind of shooting in the dark!!

As far as I know, current oggdrop source code seems to be  obsolete when compared to oggenc especially in encode.c (ie. oggdrop one doesn't use vorbis_bitrate_addblock() in oe_encode function. ... but I don't know how this function works  )

And the main difference between 20011218 and 20011219 is that ABR mode is fully supported normal/minimum/maximum bitrate setting by bitrate management on VBR.
ABR encode on 20011218 is only passed through to VBR encode function, transforming normal bitrate to VBR base quality.
I compiled oggdrop today and checked that vorbis_encode_init(&vi, opt->channels, opt->rate, -1, opt->bitrate*1000, -1); resulted in extraordinary high bitrate, while vorbis_encode_init(&vi, opt->channels, opt->rate, 192000, 128000, 96000); resulted in about  normal bitrate.
But ABR mode on 20011219 seems to be unstable at the point  encoding result get too low even when I encode the same song continuously with proper and same minimum/maximum/normal bitrate setting (not -1). This affects oggdrop but not oggenc.
I'm looking forward to updating tomorrow.

Thanks,

certainly it does affect oggenc.exe! I just tested -b 170 and ended up with a 436kbps file

nyaochi,

Thanks for that. The encode.c has been different, as has the .h, since I have been looking at this, which is not very long! Yes, I too hope tomorrow brings a little 'sunlight'!!
