Vorbis

Travis Build Status Jenkins Build Status AppVeyor Build status

Vorbis is a general purpose audio and music encoding format contemporary to MPEG-4’s AAC and TwinVQ, the next generation beyond MPEG audio layer 3. Unlike the MPEG sponsored formats (and other proprietary formats such as RealAudio G2 and Windows’ flavor of the month), the Vorbis CODEC specification belongs to the public domain. All the technical details are published and documented, and any software entity may make full use of the format without license fee, royalty or patent concerns.

This package contains:

What’s here

This source distribution includes libvorbis and an example encoder/player to demonstrate use of libvorbis as well as documentation on the Ogg Vorbis audio coding format.

You’ll need libogg (distributed separately) to compile this library. A more comprehensive set of utilities is available in the vorbis-tools package.

The Ogg homepage is located at ‘https://www.xiph.org/ogg/’. Vorbis’s homepage is located at ‘https://www.xiph.org/vorbis/’. Up to date technical documents, contact information, source code and pre-built utilities may be found there.

Building

Building from master

Development source is under git revision control at https://git.xiph.org/vorbis.git. You will also need the newest versions of autoconf, automake, libtool and pkg-config in order to compile Vorbis from development source. A configure script is provided for you in the source tarball distributions.

./autogen.sh
./configure
make

and as root if desired:

make install

This will install the Vorbis libraries (static and shared) into /usr/local/lib, includes into /usr/local/include and API manpages (once we write some) into /usr/local/man.

Documentation building requires xsltproc and pdfxmltex.

Building from tarball distributions

./configure
make

and optionally (as root):

make install

Building RPM packages

after normal configuring:

make dist
rpm -ta libvorbis-<version>.tar.gz

Building with CMake

Ogg supports building using CMake. CMake is a meta build system that generates native projects for each platform. To generate projects just run cmake replacing YOUR-PROJECT-GENERATOR with a proper generator from a list here:

cmake -G YOUR-PROJECT-GENERATOR .

Note that by default cmake generates projects that will build static libraries. To generate projects that will build dynamic library use BUILD_SHARED_LIBS option like this:

cmake -G YOUR-PROJECT-GENERATOR -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=1 .

After projects are generated use them as usual

Building on Windows

Use proper generator for your Visual Studio version like:

cmake -G "Visual Studio 12 2013" .

Building on Mac OS X

Use Xcode generator. To build framework run:

cmake -G Xcode -DBUILD_FRAMEWORK=1 .

Building on Linux

Use Makefile generator which is default one.

cmake .
make
