Subject: Problems with ogg123 on OpenBSD
To: feedback at vorbis.com
While I hate to send complaints about something that is Free(tm), I
really hoped and expected the Ogg Vorbis team to have put at least a
small ammount of work into making vorbis work under the BSDs.
As it is, when compiling libao I get errors such as
"SNDCTL_DSP_GETODELAY undeclared" and "RTLD_NOW undeclared". While I'm
not a C programer, I had the imagination to declare the variables
needed. With that error gone, I was free to install the libao library
and comile the rest of the package. When testing I discovered that
ogg123 had no idea how to actually play a sound. I tried the "-d oss "
option, to discover that oss didn't exist.
I took a trip to google hoping for some more information... I did
everything from making a rc file to linking /dev/dsp to /dev/audio...
I comiled again, found that the DSP error above was now being generated
(originally only the 'NOW' error came up) so I suppose the link did
what it was meant to do. However, I unfortunately found the same
problem plaguing me, no audio.
I can write the output of an ogg file to a wav so I'm not completely
stranded, but a two-step pplaying process is less than ideal, and will
probably re-encode all my music to mp3s relatively soon.
I hope for everyone's sake that this problem is fixed soon (before v1.0
is released) as it will seriously affect the adoptation of the format
is all BSDers are unable to listen to their ogg files/streams.
Despite annoyances I've experienced, I'm glad ogg exists, and hope it
will take over as the dominant format soon.
