WL9 and Ogg Vorbis?

Ogg is listed as a supported file type… but I can’t open an OGG with WL9. I know the file works… several free players have played it fine. Is OGG import supported? Bug?

Yes Ogg Vorbis is supported. No problem here. Where do these files come from? Are there really Off Vorbis, or “Ogg something else”? Ogg is a file container, not audio.

Just realized they are multi-channel (6 channels). So that’s probably the deal breaker with Wavelab. Right?


Any plans or considerations for non-montage support of multichannel files? Would be a welcome addition for those of us in the multimedia world. :wink:

As already mentioned, yes this is considered.

And now that the GUI has been addressed it would be the #1 reason for me to throw some money your way.

@PG1 , is there a particular reason you’re still using .ogg instead of .oga in WL11? Isn’t the latter extension recommended by Xiph.Org Foundation for audio-only files?

I was not aware of this OGG change. But where do you see this info?

Here is the relevent quote from Ogg Media Types:

The type “audio/ogg” SHOULD be used when the
Ogg bitstream predominantly contains audio data. Content served
under the “audio/ogg” type SHOULD have an Ogg Skeleton logical
bitstream when using the default .oga file extension. The .ogg and
.spx file extensions indicate a specialization that requires no
Skeleton due to backward compatibility concerns with existing
implementations. In particular, .ogg is used for Ogg files that
contain only a Vorbis bitstream, while .spx is used for Ogg files
that contain only a Speex bitstream.
