Odd Ogg behaviour

I'm about to convert some waves 2 oggs with oggenc but it seems to ignore my bitrate parameters. :confused:

the command is:

oggenc -b 96 Track\01.wav

and it spits out files at a bitrate of ~225K even when I turn the bitrate even lower.

Did I d/l an old version maybe? I have v1.0rc2 of the vorbis-tools?

-b is an average bitrate. You want to also specify a max if you don't want anything higher than "96".
oggenc filename.wav -b 96 -M 96 -o filename.ogg

In the meantime I found that option but it didn't help. The man pages tell me thethe M-option, quality settings and something other is not yet implemented. :confused:

But that was the latest version I found.

MasterC 05-04-2003 03:18 PM (what do you get from:
oggenc -v )

rc2, unless it comes after 1.0 is not the newest. Check that page for the latest vorbis tools.
