ogmtools

Post by lmello » 8. Sep 2010, 21:28

"These tools allow information about (ogminfo) or extraction from (ogmdemux) or creation of (ogmmerge) OGG media streams."

It's also an optional dependency for my dvd::rip package ;)

Nothing against ogm, but if you want to play media files on hardware players mkv is the format of choice ;) But somehow I've thought we already have ogmtools in our repo :?

Convert your old ogm files to mkv files with mkvtoolnix and be done with them.

I know how to do it, thank you. I just wanted to say "+1 to this package" not a solution for converting my old videos.
Anyway, it's not a problem for me as I can build it myself.

But again, dvd::rip depends upon ogmtools for optimal feature-set.

And if there was a package in 13.0, why not include it in 13.1?

Doesn't dvd::rip support matroska? There is nothing you can do with ogm files and you can't do with matroska files, quite the opposite. Also, ogm files were a really ugly hack, which is now abandoned of course and you really shouldn't be creating any more of them. If dvd::rip doesn't support matroska, I would consider it dated to say the least.

Because its packager abandoned the package.
