Audiophiles: aoTuV and Slackware


I am not sure if anybody will be interested but those audiophiles who are keen on the best ogg files might be interested in the small modifications to the stock 13.37 slackbuild and large patch for libvorbis 1.3.2 and aoTuV beta 6.03 that I have placed here:

http://www.andrews-corner.org/slackb...bvorbis_aoTuV/

Obviously this replaces the slackware libvorbus package so just be aware of that! Works well against the git FFmpeg and vlc and I have had no problems with other media applications although I would be very interested to hear of any issues.

Upstream vorbis already includes most of the aoTuV changes. aoTuV is better at low bitrate encodes, little to no difference at higher bitrates.

Wouldnt audiophiles have moved on to a lossless codec years ago?

I am hoping that at least a few people find this useful

I sure did
Even though I did not say so in my first post, I find aoTuV's enhancements great for low bit rate encodings. I tend to use these lower bitrates for my media player. Allows me to stuff 2x the songs on the smallish 1GiB storage.

Though for my personal music collection, I use flac for backup and archival, then oggvorbis at q7. I find it difficult to hear a difference between q7 and flac on most recordings. At q5, I find differences often. Perhaps my low quality speakers, sound card, or ears () aid in the detection.

For those that don't know what aoTuV is http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=AoTuV

Thanks! I'm trying this out right now and will post back if I have issues.

Finally organised myself to redo the patch + slackbuild for Slackware 14 (-current) and libvorbis 1.3.3. Seems to be working well enough on my system, good if somebody else can test it as well?

A bit more controversial as the aoTuV work was designed against 1.3.2 and 1.3.3 has a few bugfixes....
