NAME
ogmcat - Concatenate several OGG/OGM files into one big OGG/OGM file SYNOPSIS
ogmcat [options] -o outname inname1 [inname2 [inname3 ...]] DESCRIPTION
ogmcat does NOT work at the moment. It is work in progress. I included it just out of laziness (otherwise I'd have to remove it from the Makefile/configure stuff prior to releasing this version). ogmcat can be used to concatenate several OGG/OGM files into one big file if they are of the same type. For a more in-depth description refer to the LIMITATIONS section. -o, --output outname Output to 'outname'. inname1 Use 'inname1', 'inname2' etc as the sources. -m, --manualsync n Specifies a manual sync value in ms that will be added to each stream's presentation timestamps along with the value calculated by the chosen sync algorithm (see the -s option). This option can be used for each input file although it has no effect if used for the first one as well. -s, --sync nr Uses sync mode nr. Valid values are 0 - 4. The default value is shown on ogmcat's help screen. -n, --nosafetychecks Disable the safety checks made prior to the concatenating. The resulting file may be unplayable. See the LIMITATIONS section for further details. -v, --verbose Be verbose and show each OGG packet. Can be used twice to increase verbosity. -h, --help Show this help. -V, --version Show version information. LIMITATIONS
Concatenating streams is difficult at the best and might even be impossible. Therefore ogmcat makes very strict comparisons between the streams contained in the input files. The checks done include: * general: All streams with the same serial number must be of the same type (video, audio, Vorbis audio or text streams). * general: If a stream exists in one file it must in the other files as well. * video streams: The codec FourCC, width, height and FPS must match. * Vorbis streams: The sample rate and the number of channels must match. * other audio streams: The codec ID, sample rate, bits per sample and number of channels must match. * text/subtitle streams: The 'time unit' must match. The user can forcefully override the last four checks with the -n parameter. The checks marked as 'general' cannot be overridden this way. Audio/video synchronization might not be ok in the resulting file even if the source files were perfectly in sync. The user can experiment with the -s parameter which causes ogmcat to use slightly different algorithms for calculating the granulepos values for the audio and text streams. The range of valid parameters will be printed on ogmcat's help screen. If none of the synchronization algorithms provided works correctly then the user can also manually add a synchronization offset using the -m option for each input file. AUTHOR

NAME
ogmdemux - Extract streams from OGG/OGM files into separate files SYNOPSIS
ogmdemux [options] inname DESCRIPTION
This program extracts all or only some streams from an OGM and writes them to separate files. inname Use 'inname' as the source. -o, --output out Use 'out' as the base for destination file names. '-v1', '-v2', '-a1', '-t1'... will be appended to this name. Default: use 'inname'. -a, --astream n Extract specified audio stream. Can be used more than once. Default: extract all streams. -d, --vstream n Extract specified video stream. Can be used more than once. Default: extract all streams. -t, --tstream n Extract specified text stream. Can be used more than once. Default: extract all streams. -na, --noaudio Don't extract any audio streams. -nv, --novideo Don't extract any video streams. -nt, --notext Don't extract any text streams. Default: extract all streams. -r, --raw Extract the raw streams only. Default: extract to useful formats (AVI, WAV, OGG, SRT...). -v, --verbose Increase verbosity. -h, --help Show this help. -V, --version Show version number. NOTES
What works: * Extraction of the following formats is fully supported including writing the stream contents to useful container formats: video -> AVI Vorbis -> OGG/Vorbis PCM -> WAV text -> text files (SRT subtitle format) * All other audio streams (MP3, AC3) are just copied 1:1 into output files. MP3 and AC3 files should be usable. Others might not. What not works: * Headers created by older OggDS (DirectShow) filter versions are not supported (and probably never will be). AUTHOR
