Description Arc Riley 2011-06-10 22:57:56 UTC
media-video/ogmrip-0.13.6  USE="dbus gtk libnotify nls ogm spell theora vorbis -aac -dts -matroska -mp3 -mp4 -srt -x264 -xvid"

The resulting application only supports avi, mov, and ogm containers, not Ogg.

It should be noted that "Ogg Media" != Ogg, its an incompatible variant with h.264 video plus vorbis audio, not Ogg Theora (.ogv).

With thoggen's recent removal from Portage we no longer have a working DVD->Ogg ripper available on Gentoo.

So where's the bug?
Comment 2 Arc Riley 2011-06-11 15:00:15 UTC
The bug is the non-functional theora USE flag, misleading users into believing this application supports Ogg Theora.
Comment 3 Arc Riley 2011-06-11 17:18:35 UTC
Or you could fix the ebuild to properly enable Ogg.

Ubuntu 11.04's package for ogmrip 0.13.6 supports Ogg files properly and depends on oggz-tools which Gentoo's ebuild does not.

Emerging liboggz alone does not enable Ogg container on Gentoo, so its more tricky than a missing dependency.

Container != codec, so I don't really see a problem ...

There's theora (codec), or ogg (container), but not theora + ogg, right?  Basically, theora codec only support.

local:ogm:media-video/ogmrip: Support for OGM container format
global:ogg: Adds support for the Ogg container format (commonly used by Vorbis, Theora and flac)
global:theora: Adds support for the Theora Video Compression Codec

ogmrip has use flags for theora, and ogm, but not ogg, so it looks fine to me.

Even the description is accurate: Graphical frontend and libraries for ripping DVDs and encoding to AVI/OGM/MKV/MP4

This doesn't change that the upstream package supports Ogg Theora (ogv) and its packaged correctly for other distros, but not Gentoo.

Perhaps an ogg USE flag should be added for the insane case that someone may want to use Theora in a Quicktime file.

"Ogg Theora" is a misnomer.  Ogg is the container, Theora is the codec.

Why would we add an ogg use flag, if we don't support the ogg container?
Comment 8 Arc Riley 2011-06-11 18:23:47 UTC
You should add Ogg container support so that Gentoo users don't have to load up an Ubuntu virtual machine to rip a dvd to ogv.

With thoggen removed from Portage and this ebuild not supporting Ogg there is no longer a DVD ripping utility on Gentoo which does this.

Ah, gotcha. *little light goes on*  Patch the build so it has support for the container.

I'm not sure what Ubuntu is doing to provide that, so ... patch welcome. :)

I do see this on ogmrip's site, though, so not sure if we just need the "Oggz" plugin or not.

Olivier, what you say?
Comment 10 Arc Riley 2011-06-11 18:36:12 UTC
From the docs, and what I see on Ubuntu, it supports Ogg through oggz.
Comment 11 Olivier Rolland 2011-06-12 09:53:42 UTC
The Ogg container is available through plugins. See https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=336361
