Projects / vorbis-tools


Ogg Vorbis is a high-quality lossy audio codec which is free of intellectual property restrictions (like those surrounding MP3). These are the tools that one needs to create and play Ogg Vorbis files on the commandline, as well as a simple commentor.

            Dang Download
            Why is it that whenever a new Ogg release comes out I can never get to the download page?

            Time to sort out some mirrors I think.
