status of OggConvert


Good morning,

OggConvert 0.3.3 is currently installed from the Debian repositories. I would like to compile it from source, but the fact that only an invalid web-site is referenced everywhere, is a little frustrating.

http://oggconvert.tristanb.net/ just shows a nice Account Suspended.

Do you know something about the status of the project?

Hi...

I'm afraid I don't but if you have a launchpad account, you may be able to contact him. Also, while I'm not sure if it will help, I was able to find this file, which appears to include the source.

Regards...

Thank you.

But the file contains in its sub-folder “source” merely 1 text-file of 1 line, indicating a version number.
Although it stresses my Internet-connection a little too much, I have however activated the Debian source-repositories and will run update. Should this finish before the day is over, I could try to find the OggConvert code there.

On packages.debian.org, I can only find the binary package.

Also, if the project is discontinued for a reason, I shall be interested to know. Using gstreamer directly had not been my intention, but it should not be too difficult to create my own replacement for OggConvert in that case.

Hi...

Hmm, ok. Well, I found another possible candidate here. Direct file download here.

what does this program do?
does it have to be oggconvert?
it seems to me like converting audio to/from ogg could be handled by many different utilities:
Code:
yaourt ogg convert
1 community/audio-convert 0.3.1.1-7
    A script with an easy to use interface to convert audio files: wav, mp3, 
    ogg, flac, aac, mpc, ape and wma

4 aur/acxi 2.9.0-1 (1) (0.00)
    An expanded, cleaned up, and feature enhanced fork of flac2ogg.pl to 
    convert flac to ogg or mp3.
5 aur/caudec 1.7.5-1 (2) (0.06)
    A multiprocess audio converter that supports many formats (FLAC, MP3, Ogg 
    Vorbis, Windows codecs and many more)
6 aur/dir2ogg 0.11.8-4 (3) (0.00)
    dir2ogg converts mp3, m4a, wma, and wav files into ogg-vorbis format.
7 aur/ebook2cwgui 0.1.2-1 (0) (0.00)
    Converts plain text files to Morse Code formatted as MP3 or OGG - GUI
8 aur/fastoggenc 0.1.4-4 (17) (0.43)
    A parallelized Python script which converts MP3, M4A, WMA, WAV into OGG 
    Vorbis
9 aur/flac2all 2.75-2 (27) (0.74)
    Multi-threaded audio converter of FLAC to either Ogg Vorbis or MP3 
    retaining all tags and metadata.
10 aur/flac2ogg 0.6-5 (10) (0.00)
    a python script to convert FLAC files to OGG format
11 aur/miro-video-converter 3.0.2-5 (1) (0.00)
    Simple video converter for MP4, WebM (vp8) and Ogg Theora

It converts video-formats to ogg, Matroska or Webm. Thanks for the list.

wouldn't that be .ogv then? not that the suffix matters much.

anyhow, in that case there might be 1 more for you:
Quote:
watchvideo-svn
A small application to play, download, rip or convert (to Ogg) videos from
popular YouTube-like sites, without the need of the proprietary Flash
plugin.

You can choose to create an audio-file from the audio-stream only. Thank you for all the links, I will check them out, once that I have again a download-rate which merits the designation.

Apart from that I thank @Emerson for the link. I learned that I had been using a Python-script for long enough to be aware of the fact, but was not! My search for a source-package is complete nonsense. As oggconvert crashes more and more often, either upon choosing a source-file or later, when I want to start the conversion, I will have to replace the program anyway by something else. Python is none of my languages.

[Solved] or rather [I'm dumb - ignore].
