#1412 closed enhancement (fixed)

Content multiplexed in Ogg now requires a Skeleton track

Reported by: Saoshyant Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2 Features
Component: Stream output: Encoders Version: master git
Severity: normal Keywords: encoding ogg skeleton
Cc: Difficulty: medium
Platform(s): all Work status: Not started


As per a recent decision[1] on the Xiph.Org Foundation, all content in Ogg (save for basic Vorbis or Speex streams) are to have an Ogg Skeleton[2] track.

What that means is that for VLC to become a compliant encoder, it would need to verify that when the user chooses Ogg as the container format, unless s/he didn't pick audio-only Vorbis or Speex from the drop-down, a Skeleton bitstream would need to be multiplexed into the resulting Ogg file.

Example Skeleton code (under BSD license) may be found at [3][4].

Feel free to contact the ogg-dev[5] mailing list in case of questions.

Probably need to rewrite header using sout_AccessOutSeek

For non seekable souts, that's not doable.

mux: ogg: add skeleton metadata (fix #1412)

This patch adds Skeleton V4.0 metadata for multiplexed ogg streams.

Note this does not adds skeleton indexes to streams, as we need to have a way to get sout position to reseek and rewrite that header from keyframes.
