[Release] OGM Tools with OggDS (Bundled) v0.9.9.6-070921

Post by Mrs Peel » Thu Sep 20, 2007 9:51 am

Ay caramba! This started off as a "nifty little project" which I began yesterday to get all my OGM tools into one neat "little" addon package, but which somehow grew into an "OGM Uber-Pack" with everything you will ever need to process and play OGM files. LOL

Included in this release is all the DirectShow vorbis filters and subtitle filters required to support OGM format, all of the specialised command-line tools for OGM by Julien Coloos (aka Cyrius), and some additonal OGM GUI utilities by Tobias Waldvogel (of EverWicked) and Dirk Knop (aka Koepi) who is the author of my beloved optimised XviD codec pack.

Please note that if you decide to use any mega-codec packs such as K-Lite then I strongly recommend you disable the OggDS option when installing them, because the OggDS in this pack is a custom build and I am not sure which version those mega-codec packs are using - and whether they are as good as this one (v0.9.9.6) or not.

Title: OGM Tools Bundle
Version: 0.9.9.6
License: Open Source
Website: http://cyrius.bunkus.org/ogmtools.html
Installs to: "%programfiles%\Ripping\OGMTools"
Uninstaller: Removes program files, shortcuts, settings with an optional prompt to remove DirectShow Filters
OGM (Ogg based multimedia files) Tools
Here are some commandline tools focused on Ogg based multimedia files (.ogg/.ogm files). Those tools are inspired by the ogmtools developped by Moritz Bunkus. Two of those tools use some of the VirtualDub 1.4.10 routines (for reading/writing AVI). Those programs need ogg.dll and vorbis.dll to be installed on your system (either in the same directory, or in your Windows' System directory). Those programs are free softwares. Anyone may copy and use those programs free of charge.

The Ogg Vorbis Filter Collection (v0.9.9.6 2003-09-17) is based on the Tobias' DirectShow Filters for Ogg Vorbis Version 0.9.9.3 from Tobias Waldvogel available from the Xiph CVS. On Tobias site the Version 0.9.9.5 is available for download, which has a slightly extended feature set compared to Version 0.9.9.3. Tobias abandoned the development for some reason, but was so kind to provide the source code on Xiph CVS.

Tools Included:
* Cyrius's OGGOffset (v1.0, 2003-01-09) ogg_offset is a small utility you can use to apply an offset (delay) to the audio in an Ogg Vorbis file (.ogg).

* Cyrius's OGMCutter (v1.0a4, 2002-10-27) OGMCutter is a splitter that allow you to cut or split an OGM file to multiple OGM files according to some parameters (maximum size, split points, ...).

* Cyrius's OGMDemuxer (v2.1r2, 2006-02-20) OGMDemuxer is a basic demultiplexer that allow you to demux any stream from an OGM file. It automatically creates an AVI file for a video stream, an Ogg file for an Ogg Vorbis stream, an SRT file for subtitles.

* Cyrius's OGMerger (v0.9a5 2003-04-13) OGMerger is a merger that should be able to merge what you split with OGMCutter (for example).

* Cyrius's OGMFourCC (v1.0, 2004-03-23) ogmfourcc allow you to change the FourCC code of video tracks in OGM files.

* Cyrius's OGMInfo (v2.0, 2003-10-07) OGMInfo can parse an Ogg-based multimedia file and print useful information on its content (kind of video / audio, ...).

* Cyrius's OGMuxer (v1.1a6 2003-04-22) OGMuxer is a multiplexer that allow you to mux various kind of media (AVI, Vorbis, SRT, MP3, ...) into an OGM file. Like OGMCutter it can cut/split the OGM file being generated.

* Koepi's OggMux (v0.9.5.1 2003-07-19) This is a small GUI replacement for GraphEdit (a developer Tool which belongs to the DirectX SSDK from Microsoft) for multiplexing video and audio streams into an OGM (Ogg Media File). GraphEdit isn't really comfortable for the end-user, but very helpful during development. So there is the need for a easy-to-use user interface, which has the necessary capabilities of GraphEdit - and even more. OggMux is, in simple words, a FrontEnd to Tobias Waldvogel's OGG framework directshow filters. This updated version by Melgish.

* Tobias Waldvogel's DirectShow Subtitle filter collection for OGM (v1.4.0.0, 2002-10-07) Required to handle subtitles when working with OGM files.

* Tobias Waldvogel's OggCut (v1.0 2002/03/17) A simple Ogg file cutter with graphical interface.
Enjoy (or not)

:D

LOL well this one nearly killed me too :D

I have a newfound admiration for the peeps who make those mega-codec packs now - yikes what a lot of reg work they are. So please let me know if you get a chance to use this to report if it's all running AOK for you.

I've only got a few more Ripping/DVD utilities to go and that'll be all for now and time to compile my new install disk too hehehe.

Cheers m'dears!

PS: Please let me know if there are any other "must-have" open source ripping apps that I might have overlooked making addons for OK ;)

Actually, for the OGG, I would recommend adding in the OggEnc, OGGDec and OGGDrop files to allow for creation of OGG music files. This would allow for direct rip or rip and encode for utilities like Audiograbber, Winamp, etc. If you want links, I generally prefer the Lancer encoded dll's. Naturally, one probably should not bundle in the SSE3/P4 enhanced versions, but this way, all one would have to do if they wanted those is to drag-n-drop them into the addon replacing the default ones.

The OGG files would be useful for managing audio tracks prior to putting them into OGM or Theora files.

Mornin' all ((((blink)))) ((((yawn))))

Funnily enough, DVD2SVCD was one of the very first ripping packs I considered making into an addon, but then it occurred to me that most of the stuff in it I also need for other ripping utilities I use and was going to be making individual packs for anyway, and I am not so fond of having dupe copies of those tools scattered around my system - especially when some of them require an app path reference in the registry and so only one copy of them will be called upon anyway

Also, DVD2SVCD hasn't been updated since 2005-10-18 and a few of the utilities included in it have - for instance DVD2AVI has been superseded by DGMPGDec and some of the open source encoders (which weren't so stable and efficient way back then) have gone through better development cycles. I haven't written it off as a possibility just yet - cos as you know I often prefer trusty old apps to more recent ones - but I might not have time after this week due to real life pressures.

As far as the OGG thing goes Zacam, I was also considering doing a seperate OGG audio bundle. But I think I prefer to keep my bundles strictly audio or video, otherwise it's hard to know where to stop when adding more and more things (LOL see Odyns audio utilities pack as an example of this) and Uber-packs are a nightmare to maintain as far as ongoing updates goes.

It's been quite a while since I did any OGG work tho, cos now that bigger hard drives are so much cheaper I've kind got addicted to lossless only formats, so I'm not up on the play with whats the latest best thing since sliced bread in OGG technology.

Cheers m'dears

PS: I see we both prefer to use optimised/enhanced versions rather than mainstream release fork Z. GMTA eh ;)

[EDIT] PS @ dkrus, I'd never heard of FAVC before, but I'll check it out when I have some time and see what it does. Cheers for the headsup.

I also got tempted by larger hard drives. Sadly, I don't have a large media player and not all of them support OGG.

I went for OGG for audio format because I got the same quality of audio (by comparing to a wave form osiliscope on playback) from my ogg settings as I did under the best lame settings, but got a file half the size of the mp3. This ment twice as much music on a portable player without having to shell out money for a larger player. :-) Especially since I further restricted myself to portable players that used user replaceable batteries so I could use rechargeables.

In either case, to get back on topic, I do love this package you've brought together. I've found it most useful for the videos I've had to convert for Theora to use.
