Ogg Vorbis

[ #8791 ]

What do people use for Ogg Vorbis support in Perl? I don't need to read or write the actual audio data, just to play with the comments fields (the equivalent of the ID3 tags in MP3).

There's libvorbis on CPAN, but it hasn't been updated for two years and it didn't even build when I tried it on my RH8.0 system.

I also found Ogg::Vorbis::Info. I don't like installing modules that aren't from CPAN, but I broke my own rule and it seems to work just fine. Perhaps I should suggest that the author uploads it to CPAN.

Is there anything else out there that I'm missing?

  • This really bugs me in particular, because it's listed as a dependency of Apache::MP3. It also has a blib directory when you extract it.

    If you can convince the author to put it on CPAN, that would be a very good idea.


  • Putting Ogg::Vorbis::Info on CPAN is on my todo list. I'm considering some namespace issues before I do. The Ogg::Vorbis module returns Info objects so Ogg::Vorbis::Info causes a conflict if you want to use both modules simultaneously. Any suggestions on a new name? I'm thinking of Ogg::Vorbis::Header or Ogg::Vorbis::Tags but they just don't have the ring of Ogg::Vorbis::Info. -Dan
