View Full Version : Ogg-Vorbis 1.1 encoder(s) (enc_vorbis)
7th January 2005, 12:49
Yes I know there was already an ogg-vorbis encoder by Nullsoft, but quite old (more or less two years old) compared to the latest vorbis improvements.
So here's another one, based on the latest stable Vorbis 1.1:
Ogg-Vorbis 1.1 encoder (http://gutenberg.free.fr/forums/EncVorbis-1.1-setup.exe)
It allows to use the built-in CD ripper to make your vorbis files.
To keep things simple (and maybe because I'm a lazy guy when it comes to code a GUI in win32 too :D ), there is a single option: the famous quality setting. In the vorbis world, it goes from -1 (approximately 45kbps) to 10 (about 500kbps...). The game is to find the quality setting for which you can't differentiate the vorbis file from the CD track. Then you can stick to it as it will guarantee you the same level of quality.
Otherwise, I made another build with post-Vorbis 1.1 work. This one is based on AoTuv B3 version, patched with Archer B10 optimizations.
Basically it's supposed to be better tuned in terms of quality, and moreover is devilishly fast :cool: However it requires SSE CPU instructions, so a PIII/Athlon XP processor (or higher...) is necessary ;)
Ogg-Vorbis AoTuv B3/ Archer B10 encoder (http://gutenberg.free.fr/forums/EncVorbis-Archer%20B10-setup.exe)
For safe encoding, I would recommend to use the 1.1 encoder: this is the one I'm gonna submitting to winamp.com.
Otherwise if you can live more dangerously :p , you may want to have a try with the optimized one...
Hope you'll like them... :)

Works perfectly (ripping and tagging).
two cosmetic things: in Winamp's encoder dropdown the Archer version is also called 1.1 and the installer still says enc_flac

Ok drop-down label changed to "Archer B10", and repackaged everything with an adapted license file.
Thanks for your testing :)

Was that a question?

The encoder (v1.1) get validated today for publishing at winamp.com (http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=143868).
The problem is that the files (installer and pictures) don't seem to be on the Nullsoft FTP :cry:
Does anyone know who I should contact to report/fix this issue? Or should I resubmit the whole thing (and wait for another week before getting published)?
In case of a FTP administrator was in the neighbourhood, a mirror of the three files are here (http://gutenberg.free.fr/forums/vorbis_encoder/).
btw, thanks for your encouragements nybergh ;)

try re-submitting it again with the files and as long as i'm not beaten to it i'll check it out tonight

Thank you DrO :)
Just re-submitted it using the "edit" button. That told me it was successfully updated although some "debug" information were displayed :igor:
Array ( [COMPONENT_ID] => 143868
[USER_ID] => 2382281
[COMPONENT_NAME] => Ogg-Vorbis encode
Anyway if this doesn't work better, tell me back and I'll delete it and do a new submission.

wouldn't worry about the debug info that happens all the time ;)
re-submitted it so you'll have to see if it worked this time
11th January 2005, 23:21
Unfortunatly that wasn't working better :(
So I deleted the whole thing, and submitted it again as a "new" plug-in (so new component ID, etc...). Hope I'll get more lucky this time :)
11th January 2005, 23:42
re-submitted the new one, can't tell if it is/isn't working since it shows everything correctly on the reviewer system.

The requested URL /customize/component/2005/1/11/P/Ogg-Vorbis_encoder_v1-1.exe was not found on this server.
Maybe it'll take some time until it reaches all servers. :/
12th January 2005, 11:56
Thanks again for your patience, but unfortunatly that didn't make it :(
As a temporary measure I posted a link to my website in a review. Hope the files will magically appear soon on the FTP server (the 2005/1/11 directory isn't even created :eek: )
Thanks for your review :) Although I saw it after having posted my own. Didn't see you were redirecting interrested people to this topic :confused:
Anyway the most important thing is that people who want to rip in vorbis can do it ;)
12th January 2005, 12:02
er, i didn't do the review, i just took what had been previously done.
hmm, may have to wait a day or so and try again then since one of the other plugins (4front eq) took quite a few times to go through in the end :/
dunno why it's happening and my last attempt to contact the web team went unheard afaik so i'm at a loss. we'll get it through some how ;)

I just tried to download the new encoder from the plug-ins page and get not found error messages.
19th January 2005, 16:07
Yeah, problems with the winamp.com database again, heh.
Thankfully, the links in Gutenberg's post above still work fine.

I sincerely apologize for this, believe me I'd love my encoder to be easily available from the plug-ins page.
As DJ Egg stated before, it seems there are some issues with the database at this time. I submitted the thing several times, and although reviewers (like DrO..) validated the thing every time in a very short delay (I don't even know if they're sleeping occasionally :D ) , the publication system is definitely broken for now :(
As soon as the database will look fixed, I'll submit the files again, but for now I'm waiting for some "external signs". I don't want to annoy reviewers a hundred times because of a non-working system.
For now encoders are available for download on this topic (see first post), otherwise as I told on a comment on the plug-in page, the very same are available on my personal website (http://www.facquet.com/rubrique69.html).
I'm afraid that's the maximum I can do at this time, sorry again for the inconvenience :(
edit: some magic happened... everything is working Ok by now :)
