View Full Version : oggdec for FreeBSD?

I've built a FreeBSD system (5.3.RELEASE) to use as a dedicated SlimServer (release 6.0.2), and it's working very well when playing MP3, FLAC and WAV (ie. all the native formats). But I'm a bit stuck when it comes to on-the-fly decoding. My music library is currently in Ogg Vorbis, and it won't play. It seems fairly obvious that it needs oggdec, but I don't appear to have that. I built and installed the libogg and libvorbis ports in the hope that oggdec would be included, but it wasn't. Nor can I find it on the FreeBSD website. Anyone know where I can get hold of oggdec for FreeBSD?

SlimServer 6.0 uses "sox" linked with the vorbis libraries to play Ogg.

Thanks very much. It's now playing my Ogg files nice and smoothly. I had to fiddle around a bit in convert.conf to find the right parameters, but I got there in the end (hence the slight delay in sending this follow-up).
