we are among the last people to actually make use of the Ogg/Theora
format. Ok, just kidding, but in fact we do live and archival streaming
of various IT conferences. You can take a look at some here if you are
We are using several tools for live streaming, recording and editing
Theora streams, among them ffmpeg2theora and oggCut from oggvideotools
Now unfortunately many files are broken, either from interrupting the
recording or cutting.
Examples of error messages follow:
$ oggz-validate jnazario.ogg
00:55:27.957: serialno 0846930886: Packet out of order (previous
01:05:09.077: serialno 0846930886: Packet out of order (previous
Are there any tools that can reliably fix broken Ogg/Theora files?
What's to be done to create such a tool if there is none yet?
Thanks for your help
