Ogg Vorbis

Ogg Vorbis for OS/2

Ogg Vorbis is an audio compression format similar to MP3 but free of patented algorithms and fully open source. This is now release quality code with good sound quality and speed. On my Athlon 1200, decode speed is 45 times real time and encoding time using oggenc is around 6.5 times real time time. This means that playback uses around 2.2% CPU and a 5 minute song takes less than a minute to compress.

Download Ogg Vorbis 1.3.3 for OS/2 (534K) which contains the following tools:

oggenccompresses WAV files into OGG format

I've also written a basic PM front end to the encoder, OggEncPM v0.9.1 ( 33K). Requires the above package to be installed first.
