It was just #include <assert.h> in vorbisfile.c which I had to comment out :-) so
#ifndef UNDER_CE would be ok
I will write a small programm to play a file on CE to test if this is really enough. But it will be only possible to compile vorbis for Windows CE 3 (maybe 2.11 or higher too). Since then strcpy and other functions are available in a Unicode and 8bit char version. Older devices have only pure Unicode support.

Me too but there are no players for CE with a dll-Interface. So it would be enough for me to have a player to select files and to say start, stop or skip and that it is not too much work to program. Well and if you play on a Mobile device it would be a good thing to copy the ogg file from a Compact Flash card or IBM Microdrive to internal memory before playing because this saves battery power.
