Description Jan Essert 2009-04-15 11:08:36 UTC
OggConvert is a small, open source utility for converting audio and video files into the Vorbis audio format, and the Theora and Dirac video formats.

This should not be difficult to package. It is written in python, all dependencies are clearly stated here:

If I have time, I will try to write an ebuild myself, but don't count on it ;)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

oggconvert 0.3.2 ebuild

This is an ebuild for this package. It has 1 use flag for the optional schroedinger encoder.

Updated ebuild, webm support seems to produce broken files at the moment (matroska mimetype, don't play in firefox), I've contacted upstream about that. As soon as I have a solutionf or that I'll commit it.

* "/usr/local/portage/media-video/oggconvert/oggconvert-0.3.3.ebuild":
* Deprecation Warning: Usage of distutils.eclass in packages not supporting installation
* for multiple Python ABIs in EAPI <=2 is deprecated and will be banned on 2011-06-01.
* The ebuild needs to be fixed. Please report a bug, if it has not been already reported.

WEBM: use webmmux instead of matroskamux

This patch fixes the incorrect usage of the gstreamer matroska muxer for webm files. We need to set the webmmuxer before the files play in browsers (eg firefox).

Hanno, if you could attach this patch to the bug you opened with them that would be excellent. I have no account for launchpad and do not feel creating 1 just for this patch.

This fixes the QA problems and applies the patch attached earlier.

Project died (also no activity in vcs) seven years ago with version 0.3.3. Suggest to close this bug
