BSD Today: Ogg Vorbis, cdparanoia and rippingMar 13, 2001, 19:14 (7 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Jeremy C. Reed)
"Over the past several months, I have been reading a little about Ogg Vorbis, a new audio encoding format. I was especially interested because the technology is patent-free, the code is open source, plugins for various popular audio players are available, and now the library code has been changed to use the BSD license. I was also interested because it is a free streaming solution with code available for Windows, Macintosh OS, BEOS, OS/2 and, of course, Unix-type systems -- and I was generally dissatisfied with my Real and MPEG player experiences."
"This article shares my experiences with building an Ogg Vorbis player, converting MP3s to Ogg Vorbis format, and then creating audio files from my music CDs."
